Hi folks,

I've just spent a week over in Central Australia where the birding was 
surprisingly a bit slow with very few raptors about which was quite different 
to my previous visits to the area. No problems if you have a soft spot for the 
Zebra Finch though which, fortunately, I do! 
Anyway, while walking round the Valley of the Winds loop at Kata Tjuta I was 
surprised to find a group of four Brown Quail. I've read somewhere that they 
will head further inland after rains but this seems very inland indeed! How far 
into the interior will these birds travel and do they often reach the Red 
Centre? I'm curious.

Cheers, Iain.
