Yesterday while walking on Farrer Ridge down in the South-east corner, I heard a trilling call.  A white winged triller had been seen there last year, and I made the assumption that it had returned.  However, last night I played some bird calls and it was definitely not a WWT.  The call was most like that of a fantailed cuckoo, but it was a bit lighter and not persistent like a FTC.  It was a bit like a cross between a white-throated gerygone and a fantailed cuckoo.  I didn’t see the bird, but it came from the foliage of a eucalypt in which a mixed feeding flock of weebills and yellow-rumped thornbills were also present.  It was not an eastern spinebill.

Grateful for any suggestions.  I have already suggested to myself that I carry the bird calls with me next time.
