As an addendum to Allan Morris report,  Margaret and I spent 8 days at
Bowra about a fortnight after he and Rob Benson visited. We stayed in
our caravan, using electricity from the shearers' quarters, and using
superb hot showers, and, in our experience amazing, water-closet loos!
We were sited with a close view of the bore-fed lake. Every day Major
Mitchell cockatoos came to drink, or to eat the seeds of paddy-melons
(camel melons). That bird we think as beautifully coloured as
Cock-of-the-rock! We saw most of the birds Allan mentions, and found
Halls babbler the most common bird seen.  One female Chestnut-breasted
quail thrush was all we could find, and a single pair of Bourke parrots.
There were many Slaty-backed thornbills near the stony hills.
    We enjoyed Bowra very much, and are very grateful to Julie and Ian
for their kindness.  We plan to return.
