Hi Craig,

Yes the Bush Stone-curlews are still there at the University. I've never seen them in the Great Court but they are usually seen near the car-parks down near Schonell drive.

Hi Scot and all,

I have very fond memories of the grounds at the University of Queensland in St Lucia, Brisbane from the mid 1990s and I'm curious as to whether you have spotted any Bush Stone-curlew around the uni. I often wandered past a curlew or two late in the night there around 10 years back (usually they
were hanging around the Great Court).  I was stunned the first time I
heard these birds calling - I was resident in the Taringa area - and the
sound is something I'll never forget.

It would be great news to hear that they're still frequenting the grounds:
amazing thing to hear, really, in an city environment.
