Nice to hear back from you.
I have also had Eungella HE's at the very end of Dalrymple Rd, and along
Diggings Rd as well - but just not during June at these 2 sites. So, that's why
I was curious about what they were feeding on when you had them at these sites.
And now that you say that it was during June that you have had them there, I'm
even more curious as to what they were feeding on when you saw them. Was it
trinity beach (not so perfect this morning...cool & cloudy!!),

Subject: I am trying to find some birds
I was there in June last year and saw them at those sites, also three other
times throughout the year. I haven't seen them along Snake Rd but in my
experience they are very reliable at the other two sites - particularly at the
end of Dalrymple Rd.

Just a quick one re Eungella HE, if I may... Do you remember the time of year
that you saw them at the very end of Dalrymple Rd, and also along Diggings Rd??

Thanx in advance for your advice - it's always good to get others' thoughts on
a species that we don't really know all that much about...
