That sounds good. I found Tim Dolby's website very helpful for finding birds, particularly in the Mallee. Hopefully this book will be similarly useful.

Thanks for pointing this out, Murray. It's not available on Amazon yet so I wonder if it's the kind of thing that bigger bookshops in Brisbane, where I'll be later this month, might stock? The preview on Amazon looks very good at any rate. And thanks Andrew for pointing out Tim Dolby's website, some great stuff on there.

Edward - sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, I have been away.

When it first came out I had to go around about five bookshops in the Sydney CBD to find a copy (and five is pretty much all of them). Hopefully the distribution system will be sorted out by then and it should be in larger bookshops by then but I wouldn't guarantee it. Alternatively I see there's a Kindle edition now available.

I found this in the third bookshop (Folio Books) I went into in Brisbane and ummed and aahed over whether to buy it, wondering in the age of e-Bird and trip reports whether the days of printed site guides are numbered, but I bought it and am very glad I did - it's a really attractive and well-produced book and it will be very useful on future trips to Australia.
