Hello all.. I've just returned from my third trip to Bowra Station in
Western Queensland. I have now sampled Bowra in Autumn, Winter and Spring,
so I guess Summer will be next! Each time I go there it is a different
experience with different species being prominent. E.g., in May 2008
Budgerigars, Diamond Doves, Crimson Chats & Zebra Finches were all
abundant.this time those species were scarce and I did not see one Budgie!
The major difference this time was to experience Bowra after rain (3 days of
heavy rain in fact). This made it very dodgy for two wheeled drive and we
almost got bogged driving in (especially when we had to stop for a very
silly cow!). Our movement around the station was severely curtailed but we
still managed 82 species and had two full days of great birding. Two lifers
for me were Black-eared Cuckoo and Little Woodswallow. A full species list
and Photos have been uploaded to  if
anyone is interested.

Cheers Steve Murray
