Published sightings for the week ending 11 Nov 2012.

Mon 5 Nov Fork-tailed Swift, Scarlet-chested Parrot, Red-lored Whistler, Striated Grasswren, Black-eared Miner Gluepot Reserve
Some 30 Fork-tailed Swifts were racing over Gluepot at 3pm this afternoon, heading NE during a strong westerly front. Approx location was 33 48 50 S/ 140 03 21 E. I haven't seen these here for many years. Other goodies today, despite the weather (already 29C at 5:30am and overcast, threatening all day, with light rain, followed by a windy cooler change) included a male Scarlet-chested Parrot, two Red-lored Whistlers, two parties of Striated Grasswrens and Black-eared Miners at their nest.

Fri 2 Nov Little Button-quail (2) Boundary Rd, Owen
Found whilst spotlighting for Owls near Owen in SA's lower north! First bird flushed from ankle deep stubble but landed only a few metres away which allowed the chance for a few photos! Next bird was seen around a kilometre away.. this bird also flushed but kept going a long way! Also seen: 6 Barn Owls and a few Stubble Quails flushed also!
