Hi all,

Good rainfall over the last few months has created great conditions in the
SA outback (particularly the Birdsville track) and some of the birds that
have bred up there, seem to be moving south. Gluepot is looking good, and
Orange and Crimson Chats have recently reached the reserve. They don't
occur there every year, in fact I think it was 2012 that I last saw orange
chats there. We'll be expecting Pied & Black Honeyeaters next!  Two days
ago I had the first Rainbow Bee-eater for the season at Gluepot. Currently
all three local species of Cuckoo are present (Black-eared, Horsfield's and
Palid). No sign of Scarlet-chested Parrots yet but they can't be too far
off. And the resident species (Black-eared Miner and Red-lored Whistler in
particular) are performing as usual...!
