Slender-billed Thornbill – recent sightings.

hi Jane,

it’s been many years (15 yrs) since I was there at Port Wakefield, so it’s not recent info, but I found a small party of them readily as soon as I found the first good habitat for them in the low samphire/saltbush as you enter the Port Cinton CP, just on the west side of the hwy and just north of Port Wakefield township itself.

as long as that habitat is still intact I would imagine that they will still be in that area given that they are a resident species…


martin cachard,

I am travelling in South Australia and would appreciate location advice and recent sightings of the Slender-billed Thornbill. I will be in the Port Wakefield area before travelling into Yorke Peninsula. Thank you. Jane Hall.
