I’m just back from a quick trip to Bowra. They had nearly 50 mm of rain
earlier in the week on top of what was already a good season. This made
driving on the property “interesting”.  The country looks great and it’s
teeming with birds. There appears to be 10s of 1000s of Zebra finches,
Crimson Chats and Diamond Doves on Bowra at the moment.

The “good” birds are there as well including Halls Babbler, Chestnut
–breasted Quail Thrush, White-browed Treecreeper, Ground Cuckoo- Shrike,
Painted Honeyeater and many, many more. Raptors are prolific although
the Grey Falcon which bred at Bowra remained elusive.

The rumours of Bowra for sale are true. The asking price is $1.5m which
doesn’t seem a lot in he scheme of things to preserve such a wonderful

Many thanks to the other birders I caught up with at Bowra – James,
Richard, Raphael, Liana and Claire from the Uni of Queensland and Bob,
Carole, Phil and Marilyn from the Sunshine Coast.

Best Regards

Allan Benson
