This doesn't appear to have gone through 1st time, so here goes again.
I'm afraid none of these species can be found close to Adelaide. You'll
have to head up to the Flinders Ranges for a few of these (4-5 hrs =
drive). Rufous Fieldwren can be found without too much trouble, =
particularly at Brachina Gorge. The best areas to look for Short-tailed
Grasswren are around Willow Springs (just north of Wilpena Pound, call =
in at the homestead for a map and gps directions), Stokes Hill Lookout =
(adjacent to Willow Springs), and there have also been reports from it =
along the track into the Appealinna ruins. Chirruping (not Chiming) =
wedgebill can be found along the track to (east of) the Wearing Gorge, =
If you're lucky you could find the Mallee Emu-wren in the southern part
of Ngarkat CP (2-3 hrs from Adl), at the southern entrance at the track
runs parallel to the main track for a few 100 metres then bears right, =
search the open plains with heath. You'll probably need a 4WD. Rufous =
Fieldwren and Western Whipbird have also been recorded from Ngarkat but
the latter rarely. Otherwise for MEW's try the Thomas & Thomas site at =
Hattah (just over the border in Vic) or the track leading into the =
mallee from the back of Pink Lakes (along the Mallee Highway from =
Pinnaroo-Ouyen). Both sites are probably 4-5 hrs drive from Adl.
Best chances for Western Whipbird - Innes NP at the bottom end of
Peninsula (3 hrs drive), and on Kangaroo Island at Cape Gantheaume =
Conservation Park, on the D'Estrees Bay side.
Rock Parrots are regularly seen at Penrice (access only through BirdsSA
or if you know someone with a key). I saw one a few months ago at the =
back of Penrice along the public track to the mangroves of Pt Gawler CP
(near the Penrice gate on the left).
No recent sightings of SCPs at Gluepot that I'm aware of. Also check
my website (url below)
