February 2019
Tue 19Australian Bustard
East of Norseman
I saw a total of 7 birds yesterday by the side of the road. First 3 were around 300Km east of Norseman, and the other 4 some 270Km east of Norseman next to Eyre Hwy. I have done the east-west crossing 9 times now and have never before seen any AB's along this stretch of the road (seen one bird in SA once); I thought it worth reporting.
