A quick note about a visit last weekend to Astrebla Downs National Park in
south-west Queensland. It was very dry out there. Birds included yellow
chats and little grassbirds at the Number Two bore drain, gibber chats
everywhere, inland dotterels spotlighted and flushed during the day, the
first spotted nightjar for the park and a sandy inland mouse spotlighted,
but no bilbies. In the mulga between Cunnamulla and Eulo, birds (especially
parrots) were surprisingly scarce on the ground, although a few hall's
babblers and white-browed treecreepers were about. East of Charleville, emus
were literally dropping dead all over the place.
