Rain at Gluepot..

Unless the roads have been upgraded since we were last there, rain of any significance at Gluepot results in a “Glue Pot”, and stranding until the roads dry out.

Not a bad place to be locked down though, depending on who else is there.

Of course you?re probably doing this already, but the eBird app (for members) will show you what?s been seen in a given radius (1, 2, 5, 10 or 30km from your current location or any given location) over a defined time period. This has been invaluable to all of us doing Bird-a-Day eg today I know if I want to see Russet-tailed Thrush or Striated Thornbill they were both seen yesterday at a reserve about 45 minutes away. That?s today?s plan!

The key, as I?m sure you?ve realised, is to keep as many ?easy? birds as possible to use on days when the weather or life itself – or another lockdown – gets in the way of birding.

Of course you?re probably doing this already, but the eBird app (for members) will show you what?s been seen in a given radius (1, 2, 5, 10 or 30km from your current location or any given location) over a defined time period. This has been invaluable to all of us doing Bird-a-Day eg today I know if I want to see Russet-tailed Thrush or Striated Thornbill they were both seen yesterday at a reserve about 45 minutes away. That?s today?s plan!
