Hi all,

After all the recent noise online here about Lake Cargelligo, Whoey Tank, 
Nombinnie, Round Hill, Back Yamma, and the wonderful birding ATM, don't plan on 
going out there anytime soon.

Contacts in Euabalong, 25 mins north of Lake Cargelligo, expect to be cut off 
in the next few days. Condobolin has peaked twice already at higher than 6 
metres. And Cowra's peak latest was 2M higher than expected according to the 
ABC this morning.

Locals fully expect this flooding to exceed 1990 levels.

A couple days ago another contact posted footage of a carp swimming across the 
Lake-Condobolin road on Facebook. Lake Cargelligo could get in neither flour 
for the bakery nor newspapers yesterday.

So if you were excited about birding opportunities in Central West NSW anytime 
soon, forget about it. And from the news, I can only imagine most of western 
Vic is in a similar situation.

Gordon Cain,
Safe and dry in NW Sydney,
And not visiting the Central West these holidays
