Movements of Grey Teal Anas gracilis from a drying, arid zone wetland

Grey Teal (746) were banded on Lake Salisbury, an ephemeral lake in north-western New South Wales in June 1987, before the lake dried. By June 1991, 19 of these birds had been shot by hunters in south-eastern Australia, and their bands recovered. Such recoveries show that Grey Teal, including juveniles, travel to wetlands in south-eastern Australia from drying, ephemeral wetlands in north- western New South Wales.
