Two legends of the birding world - Mark Holdsworth and Fred van Gessel - interview with KI Radio

Reknowned ornithologist and threatened species recovery specialist Mark Holdsworth is a frequent visitor to King Island and together with Matt Webb and the team from ANU has been very active in following the KI Scrubtit and now the rediscovery of the KI Brown Thornbill. Fred van Gessel is the man who records bird song and turns them into CDs and recordings that are used in many, many publications and Field Guides of Australian birds. Both were on the island for the 2019 Spring Wings on King Surveys and were interviewed by Wade Roskam from the KI Community Radio - 100.5 If you missed it or would like to hear it again click here...

Wow! The search for the KI Brown Thornbill goes on... The Wings on King Spring survey weekend was another great weekend - despite the weather! Find out more... It culminated in a workshop with Mark Holdsworth leading a group of interested King Islanders and visitors from off the island, to find the elusive King Island Brown Thornbill. We found them - and at one stage there were 5 individual birds around us. Sooo exciting and what a privilege. When you see the bird it looks so very different to our other King Island Tasmanian Thornbill - also a KI subspecies but commonly found across the island. It is increasingly thought that this Brown Thornbill is really a full species in its own right,
