Wed 19 Dec Australian Bustard Eyre Highway, 5km east of Cocklebiddy, Western Australia
Our elation at seeing a Bustard within five metres of the highway was diminished when we realised a second Bustard was dead on the road close by. We wonder whether they were the pair which we had seen at the top of the escarpment on the road to Eyre Bird Observatory in January 2012.

A pair of Naretha Blue Bonnets seen on the Old Coach Road, north of Eucla, soon after crossing into WA. We accessed the Old Coach Road from the Old Eyre Highway in SA.
