Helen & I are in Alice Springs and for the moment stranded.
Initially we were to travel from Copley north to Maree & on to experience the "bloom" of the centre & see Lake Eyre from above. Helen developed a rotten outbreak of cellulitis in her right leg, so Leigh Creek for antibiotics and leg raised in comfortable bed. The heavens opened, town flooded, all roads out closed. Eventually we got to Port Augusta & headed for Alice Springs. Leg no better & Helen ended up in hospital on a drip. Been there 4 days now, probably 3 or 4 to go!!

Hence we are late for our Desert Discovery camp east of Connie Sue track in WA - Skyes Bluff. Yellow-throated miners prolific in Alice springs; compare with noisy miner. Alice S. amazingly green.

Much bird breeding, as seems to be the case back in the ACT.
