The results of 21 cm HI survey observations are presented for two fields, centred on the Centaurus and Fornax southern galaxy clusters. One previously uncatalogued dwarf galaxy was detected near the southern edge of the Fornax cluster, and is visible on UKST survey plates. Implications for the Parkes Multibeam All Sky Survey are discussed.
