I think some of the species to watch for changes in migration patterns would include - species that winter in PNG etc - swifts, RB Pittas, BBP Kingfishers, M Starlings, B Swallows, koels, CB Cuckoos, oriental cuckoos, PI Pigeons [some of these are important for the CYP birding tourism industry] - species with significant migrations in Aus - eg Swift & OB Parrots, fruit doves, monarchs etc
- species that winter in Aus - eg DB plovers etc

Regards, Laurie.

It will be interesting to see how the migration patterns of birds that come to Aus evolve. Will an increasing proportion overwinter in Aus, and will some start breeding in Aus?,,2-1877461,00.html

Lazy birds give African winter the cold shoulder

GROWING numbers of migratory birds are too lazy to fly all the way to Africa for the winter and are staying in Britain.
