Today I paid a visit to Jude Hopwood’s haunts east of Collector to see if there was more than the reported single Dusky Woodswallow in the neighbourhood.  The answer was in the negative, but I did find in a paddock with low green grass cover about 5km from Collector a counted 84 magpies, spread evenly, as if each had been allocated its own few square metres.  Loud skylark singing at that spot.   On Currawang Road I found a Rufous Songlark singing lustily from a leafless roadside tree, the song being faintly echoed by another nearby.  No sign of small dark birds at that TSR, Jude (does seem to be a regulation TSR by the way), only a Brown Falcon, Yr Thornbills and fairywrens.  A flock of 30 Little Ravens was round about, but a common enough sight in that area, I suppose.
