Hi all,
In an earlier message I mentioned that some associates had just recently
completed a trip through the Simpson Desert producing some 200 atlas
reports. Having now checked through these (as RO) before sending them on to
BA Melbourne, I was amazed to find that they sighted Banded Whiteface in no
less than 25 different locations during the trip, starting north of
Oodnadatta and finishing north of the Flinders Ranges. Across the actual
desert, ie between Purnie Bore and Birdsville, they also encountered Eyrean
Grasswrens at 17 locations.
But, please don't ask me for details, they've all been sent in to BA.

   There's nothing quite like the feeling of seeing a new bird is there?
