Richard, Herewith list - if I do this again I obviously should not send
an attachment.
We saw a limited number of birds because in the morning we failed to get
more than a glimpse of the Grasswren so went back to the area in the
late afternoon instead of wandering around other areas of the property.
Peter was an excellent guide - he has some good paintings and is on a
retainer from Pandurra.  What an excellent property - tremendous
development in terms of stock management, water access in particular and
hence minimal unneccessary stock movement.  This shows up in the lack of
erosion around water troughs.  Hope this fills in the details for you.
I did check the attachment for viruses and this MSWORD  list is also
free as far as I can tell. Howard
PS this list is NOT formatted.
