Hi all. Just a 'heads up' - for WA desert travellers.

Restricted level of access through Ngaanyatjarraku lands is now possible. I have just received a permit for travel on the Anne Beadell from Neale Junction to Laverton, but was refused a permit for the Old Warburton Road.

Cheers.

Hello John

How are you getting to Neale Junction - from the south ?

Cheers

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

Hi Greg.

Yes, heading north from Cocklebiddy. Looking for Naretha Bluebonnet, Scarlet-chested Parrot and Ground Cuckoo-shrike. Will be happy if I just get one of... :-).

Cheers.

John.

Good stuff - have fun.

PS Princess parrots have been recorded breeding near Neale Junction - though maybe they are not on your hit list.

Cheers

They are on my hit list; it's just that I never expect to ever see one... Altho I might have seen one already at Jupiter Well last year but it was at distance and it de-camped before I could get onto it. :-(

Add them to your list - as you know they move around a lot - keeps your eyes and ears open :)

Cheers

Sorry to tell you this but the reason for some of the birds you now search for are harder to find, is probably cause when I was at kid & we lived like nomads all over OZ & whilst living in Rawlinna & Cook every kid use to trap birds & sell to museums in Perth & Sydney & sometimes we could earn more $ than our dads in a week. The train would stop (I think twice a week) & we could load our catch. The museums would supply us cages & feed, later I found out most got taxidermy & sent all over. My uncle who got an apprenticeship in 1948 as a taxidermist at the Sydney Museum was sent many & later he & his wife went on to be conservationist & started the reptile association of Aust & photographed & wrote many books & articles on reptiles & birds mainly in Australia & New Guinea
Hope you find & photograph more than you expect to good luck
