To Peter Erwin. Like Frank O'Connor I am also interested in knowing where
you saw the Western whipbird at Two People's Bay. I have just returned from
5 days there and saw most of the sought species. The Western whipbird was
the key species that I dipped on. I heard them numerous times in the heath
above Little Beach carpark and also on the track to the standard noisy scrub
bird site (and occasionally at that site!) that runs off the track to Sinker
Reef. But no spottings of whipbirds despite a lot of effort.

One of the difficulties is that walking off track through these well-known
areas is now banned because of the possibility of spreading dieback fungi
that might eventually impact on the survival of Gilbert's Poteroo.

To anyone. Any good sites for Western whipbird in WA? It seems harder than
the noisy scrub bird if that is possible. I am going back to WA in late
September and would like to give it a second chance.
