Hello all... Lorne here...

Went to DUBBO/WELLINGTON on the weekend. Didn't see anything
spectatcular. At Western Plains Zoo at Dubbo there were White-browed
Babblers, apostlebirds galore, White-plumed honeyeaters, various ducks,
Spiny-cheeked Honeyeaters... an emu was being swooped on by angry
apostlebirds... not much else really. At the wondrous Wellington Caves
there were many Brown Songlarks singing away, Little Lorikeets,
Peregrine Falcons, more apostlebirds...many Brown Falcons, kestrels and
Little Eagles, Red-rumbed parrots etc. about at many places (near Mudgee
particularly)...I watched out for Grey Falcon (!!!!!!!!!!!!) which was
apparently in the Dubbo area at times, according to the 80s volume WHERE
TO FIND BIRDS IN NEW SOUTH WALES (Terry Lindsay), Ground cuckoo-shrike
and Black-eared Cuckoo - no luck!!! 

Lots or rain and ominous leaden skies yeasterday. Bloody hot at Dubbo on
