Malleefowl, Bronzewing Flora & Fauna Reserve, VIC

I've been pretty keen to see a Malleefowl for ages. The Bronzewing Flora & Fauna Reserve in Victoria's north west is a great patch of Mallee with a reportedly dense population of this sought-after species so, seeing as I was camping just up the road, I dropped in for a look. There are no signs for the reserve. If you are travelling along the B220 from Ouyen just wait 'til you hit the patch of mallee after 4KMs or so and look out for a right hand turn (Anderson Road I think). I missed it first time. I parked up before the rail crossing, because I'm 2WDing, and walked into the reserve. I got there late because Malleefowl are crepuscular so stuck to the main track, past the damn, round the zed-bend and up to the the dune area at the end of the track (below)...

...that's where I saw these good-looking Malleefowl tracks crossing the sandy path...

...which defied the presence of two MALLEEFOWL! YEAH! One shot off like a race horse and the other, pictured here, slowly slipped into the bush - if you'll pardon the expression. One of my birding highlights.
