Aerial Survey, 17th November 2014

17/11/14 – Richard Kingsford

Our last survey day – more than a month since we started and after we have covered a lot of the eastern part of the continent. Our work today was to survey Lake Cowal on the Lachlan and then head south to pick up on a couple Riverina wetlands.

Lake Cowal is a majestic lake and a haven for waterbirds when it has water.  The lake which had filled in 2010 was only about half full and very shallow. There were places in the middle which were drying.
