    Default 2010 Phototwitch Species Lists

    Firstly - thanks to all who participated in the 2010 Birding Oz Phototwitch!

    This thread has been created for all participants to post their species lists from the event if you haven't already forwarded them to me. Using the list you provide we'll also been awarding a 'rarest' bird of PhotoTwitch 2010. If you have one that stands out in particular from your list, feel free to nominate that as your rarest bird.

    Here's a quick recap of the preliminary results so far...

    90 - Pictorella
    88 - Rob89 (updated)
    80 - Ashy Drongo
    71 - Heyn (updated)
    67 - Arron
    66 - wingsonwire
    65 - Joshua
    57 - Richard Hall
    53 - feral1
    52 - Lucky
    43 - Jennywren
    41 - Harlz (updated)
    37 - Colonel Boris

    A few notable mentions in there to Josh who only travelled 10km, and Colonel Boris and Jennywren who only used public transport and had small children with them!! Massive effort i reckon!

    There will be another thread for people to put forward their 3 best images for judging the 2010 Best Phototwitch Image!

    Thanks again everyone!
    Cheers, Dave

    Default Re: 2010 Phototwitch Species Lists

    Thanks to all who helped organise and to those who participated in PhotoTwitch 2010.

    I teamed up with a fellow BirdingOz member Peter (feral1) and we spent 8 hours on Saturday the 4th December visiting a few locations east of Adelaide.

    First up we hit Laratinga Wetlands near Mount Barker in the Adelaide Hills at 8:20am, before heading to Monarto Woodlands, Rocky Gully Lagoon (near Murray Bridge) and Monarto Conservation Park, where we only managed to step foot out of the car before being hit by a thunderstorm. We finished the event driving into Strathalbyn where we got a Black Kite cruising over town as our last bird at 3:45pm.

    I captured 57 species on the day. I dipped on quite a few I expected (mainly due to that thunderstorm!) but I'm pleased overall with my result. Here's my species list for PhotoTwitch 2010.

    1. Australasian Grebe
    2. Australasian Pipit
    3. Australasian Reed-Warbler
    4. Australasian Shoveler
    5. Australian Pelican
    6. Australian Raven
    7. Australian Wood Duck
    8. Black Kite
    9. Black-faced Cuckoo-shrike
    10. Black-fronted Dotterel

    15. Brown Goshawk
    16. Common Blackbird
    17. Common Bronzewing
    18. Common Starling
    19. Crested Pigeon
    20. Crimson Rosella
    21. Eurasian Coot
    22. Galah
    23. Grey Shrike-thrush
    24. Grey Teal
    25. Hardhead
    26. Hoary-headed Grebe
    27. Horsfield's Bushlark

    Here is my list of the Twitch 2010. I as you know went to a few usually excellent areas, but due to thunderstorms and excesive heat in some areas only us 2 idiots (Rich) were out in it.
    Looks like all had a good time and great counts.

    1. Australasian Grebe

    I had a go at the phototwitch on Dec 4th, but wasn't very successful. Travelling by public transport, my plan was to start at Jawbone Reserve Williamstown, then walk along the Kororoit Creek and Altona foreshore, taking in some of the wetlands. Unfortunately, due to recent rains, a ford across the Kororoit Creek was underwater (some poor guy had stalled his car trying to cross it) and unable to find another way around, I had to head back the way I came. Half the day gone, I decided to head to the Melbourne Botanic Gardens, as one can usually find all the common birds there. However, may be due to the heat and crowds in the park, birds were elusive. My total was a disappointing 38, none of them terribly good. Still, an interesting experience, some lessons learned. Definitely worth having another go next year. :roll:
