A flash of colour that takes my eye at the age of 10 in 1968 and learning that it is an Adelaide rosella.
Reaching the edge of a vast swamp north of Birdsville in 1982 thinking, “This is perfect habitat for grey grasswrens. They must be here.” And they are! Right at the edge of the road – just the third population ever discovered until then of an inland Australian bird only described to science in 1969.
