My apologies for the delay in responding to your article.  Unfortunately
it took
me quite some time to trace the required information.

On the Queens Birthday long week-end (9th to 12th June 1995), the QOSI
held a
campout at Bracker State Forest near Inglewood SE Qld.   During that
week-end we
saw a couple of Banded Lapwing in a recently ploughed field.  They were
on the ploughed earth - no grass.

Perhaps the ploughing had un-earthed, or attracted a food supply for

Linda Cross
SE Qld.
