Thu 2 Aug Flock Bronzewing Sandfire Roadhouse, Great Northern Highway, Western Australia
Saw at least 20 flocks perhaps 1,000 birds crossing the Great Northern Highway about 15km north of Sandfire Roadhouse, travelling east. They were flying low 20 to 30 meters up and landing about 1 km east of the road. Also numerous Australian Pratincoles and Red-capped Plovers on the roadside verges.

Around dozen birds seen congregating around the Honeymoon Pool picnic area, being fed by people having BBQ's. Still quite flighty and shy. Beautiful sounds in the forrest.
