Hi all,

Just a quick note to say that while it's getting warmer at Gluepot and the
prolific plantlife is starting to dry off a little, bird activity is still
strong. Scarlet-chested Parrots are still being seen although not as easily
as earlier. Flocks of Budgerigars have descended onto the Reserve from the
outback and are breeding in many places. Then there's still good activity
of the 'usual' sought-after species: Red-lored Whistler, Striated
Grasswren, Black-eared Miner (although mostly hybrids these days), Chestnut
Quail-thrush etc etc. Even Painted Buttonquail seem to have returned to the
area. I've posted some recent pictures in a facebook album, click on the
bottom link of the signature block below to view them.

For those planning a trip out there, please be aware that a portion of the
reserve will be closed to the public for feral animal control between 25-28
Nov. Certain parts of the reserve, including the visitor centre, will
remain open. If you're planning a visit during this period, please phone
the rangers on (08) 88929600 for more details.
