Gidday all,
                having had some dealings with the NPWS wildlife atlas I suggest that all records on the database are used with caution. While the two species listed below are quite reasonable, many records are just silly. Errors range from data entry mistakes through to ID mistakes (little or no vetting of data is carried out).

The following are some of them,

Cotton Pygmy Goose 4 sightings- record generated 23-8-03
Bar Shouldered Dove 1 sighting-record generated 23-8-03
