g'Day all

Our first Pallid this year was observed on 03 July near Kaln Bore in the Strzelecki Desert, North Eastern SA approx. 50 km SW of Camerons Corner. Heard calling loudly at daybreak. For the following week Pallids were observed daily and also heard calling frequently at various sites where natural conditions are respondoing vigorously to heavy rainfall several weeks ago.

Across NE South Australia and SW Queensland where the seasonal indicators are alive, nomadics have arrived in great abundance, the ephemeral lakes are inundated and an exceptionally good breeding event is underway. Australian Pratincoles, Australian Dotterels, Red-necked Avocets and Banded Plover are in large numbers across thousands of square kilometres and breeding successfully with eggs and young, some several weeks old seen in many areas over the past two weeks. I will post details of highlights including Letter-winged Kite, Black-breasted Buzzard nesting and also Apostlebirds at Yandama Bore and also a complete trip report in the near future.
