A total of 5618 birds (118 species) were banded in the Riverina between 1964 and 1972. A total of 3139 of these (95 species) were banded at the Inland Fisheries Research Station (IFRS) (now the Narrandera Fisheries Centre) on 629 days netting. At the IFRS 608 individual birds were recaptured a total of 922 times, giving a recovery rate of 19.4%. Residency, migration, irregularity of visits and the influence that rainfall and flooding played on these were examined. Birds banded elsewhere in the Riverina are recorded and the incidence of breeding is reported. The need for long term studies to determine true species diversity in inland Australia is emphasised.
