Kirri (?) asked about the EBO. Highlights are Rock Parrot,
Blue-breasted Fairy-wren, Major Mitchell's Cockatoo, Brush
Bronzewing, a good range of honeyeaters, possible Chestnut
Quail-thrush, possible Malleefowl, etc, etc. Western Pygmy
Possum. Check the area near the microwave tower for quail-thrush,
Shy Heathwren, Malleefowl, etc.
I would recommend contacting Arubiddy Station for permission to
access the station. They have Blue Bonnet, Orange Chat, Inland
Dotterel, Slender-billed Thornbill, Rufous Fieldwren, Nullarbor
Quail-thrush (difficult), Scarlet-chested Parrot (occasionally),
Ground Cuckoo-shrike, Australian Bustard, White-winged Fairy-wren,
etc. Arubiddy is across the road from Cocklebiddy.
If you want Nullarbor Quail-thrush, I have heard that it is a fairly
good chance just north of Eucla. I haven't been there, so I can't
give you more precise details. There is of course the traditional
Thomas & Thomas site near the Nullarbor Roadhouse in SA.
Also check out the area out the back right of Cocklebiddy, where
there is a sewage pond.
