Aerial survey of waterbird communities of the Murray Darling Basin
Aerial surveys of waterbirds can be used to identify high conservation wetlands as well as estimate species’ abundance and monitor changes in wetland condition over large temporal and spatial scales. In November 2007 an aerial waterbird survey of The Living Murray (TLM) Icon Wetland Sites was successfully completed, the first survey of all Icon sites at one time. Previous waterbird surveys had been icon site specific using ground based assessments.
In 2008, aerial waterbird surveys were performed in spring to coincide with separately funded programs including the Eastern Australian Waterbird Survey and The National Waterbird Survey. In 2013, reporting of Murray Icon Sites (MI) (2007-2012) and Hydrological Indicator Sites (HIS) (2010-2012) were combined under the single title of Targeted Wetlands Sites.
The project is funded by Murray-Darling Basin Authority.

Thankfully Saturday’s heat was gone but there was a howling southwesterly wind, just what we didn’t really want going west. First we ‘mopped up’ surveying a couple of small wetland areas around the Gwydir before we headed west for the Paroo.
