  • Pale-vented Bush-hen at Chainman Creek (Victoria Hwy) reported by Marc Gardner, Laurie Ross, Mick Jerram on 11-01-2018
    2 birds in thick grasses of woodland. Seen first by Marc as one bird appeared briefly. 2 birds enigmatically skulked in the grass close to the track, lightly calling. Worthwhile noting that the location is Savanna Woodland and no permanent water within about 6km (Katherine River). Woodland grasses include Speargrass (Sarga intrans), Kangaroo Grass (Themeda), Golden Beard Grass (Chrysopogon fallax) and Cockatoo Grass (Allteropsis semialata). The grasses as expected are thick and green with a lot of seeding occurring from wet-season grasses. Area is a sandy loam with small waterholes/swampy depressions which dont last too long without rain.
