Hello Birding-ausers,

I've just begun a new position with NSW NPWS in western NSW. As part of this position I am looking into the biodiversity existing in the two bioregions named Riverina and Cobar Peneplain. The Riverina bioregion stretches from approximately Balranald north to Ivanhoe and then down through Griffith to the Murray River. The Cobar Peneplain stretches from approximately Hillston up west of Cobar and up to Louth, then up to Bourke. From here it extends down through approximately Nyngan past Condobolin and down towards Griffith.

I am particularly interested to hear from people who might have experience (flora or fauna- although obviously I'm interested in birds) in these areas. Any observations or trip lists that people may have made within these areas would be great to see. I'm also interested in people's opinions on conservation issues or even just good birdwatching spots.

If anyone could suggest any potentially good contacts (ie with fauna or flora knowledge about the area) relevant to the Cobar Peneplain area I'd be very interested to hear about them. Riverina also but I'm particularly short on contacts within the Cobar Peneplain. This could include people who reside in the area or just those who have visited the area to have a good knowledge of it. Obviously there are many people that aren't on Birding-aus!

This might be a good chance to get up on a soapbox!
