Hi everyone,
My brother and parents are about to head off on a 3 month trip 
beginning in Victoria going to SA (stop at Bool Lagoon), then to 
Alice Springs, Darwin, Kakadu then to Mt Isa and back to the east 
coast and down to Victoria.  This will be the second time in the 
Centre and Darwin areas but the first time they have come through the 
gulf country.  

My brother has Bransbury, Thomas and Thomas and the NT guide (I can't 
remember the authors of that one) so he has most of the usual sites 
lined up however he would be very interested in hearing about recent 
observations of the tougher birds (Hooded Parrot, Chestnut Rail, 
Banded Fruit Dove, White-throated, Carpentarian and Striated Grasswren, 
Yellow Chat, Banded and Chestnut-breated Whiteface, Letter-winged Kite amongst 
others), or special 
spots which people know of which may not be listed in the guides or 
given enough importance.  Unfortunately my family does not have 
internet access so I am asking on their behalf.  

Also as I will be stuck in Melbourne while they travel would people 
be interested in hearing weekly or fortnightly bird reports from 
these areas where reports on birding-aus are often scarce.

Thanks in anticipation
John Boyce

Best Wishes
