Hi all

Just letting you know that an amazing spectacle of a minimum of 60,000 Oriental Pratincole's are currently feeding on Roebuck Plains along the highway to Port Headland.

These birds are feeding on a large locust plague that is in the grassland and can been seen in several flocks often with 15,000 in each flock.

Some of the photos can be seen at.

Cheers Adrian Boyle
