About a year ago the ANPS visited Glendale Depot in Naamdgi NP during which expedition I noticed some Brown Treecreepers.  A few months later the COG WWers went to the same area and noticed the Brown Treecreepers were hanging out on rocks.  Today ANPS walked along Rendezvous Creek - a tad further South in Namadgi - and again Brown Treecreepers were observed treating Granite outcrops (at least 500m from the nearest wooded area) as though they were tree trunks!  Hanzab is silent on this matter

White-naped Honeyeaters were vocal where the Creek went under Boboyan Rd and Yellow-faced HE were heard in that area.  Neither of these species (nor White Eared HE or Red Wattlebird) seemed to be moving on, but rather holding to the same area through the day.

The other non-usual species observed was a quail flushed from the grassland to the S of the creek.  On the balance of probabilities, including jizz and what my poor old eyes could pick up, I conclude it was a Stubble Quail.
