Thanks for the lead Sandra
Had a walk from top of Long Gully road through Wanniassa hills nr yesterday.
There’s some ideal habitat with leaf litter and tussocks of kangaroo grass? in
that nw corner of WHNR. Alas no quail thrush. But in 3 hrs walk down west side
of reserve encountered a few mff, including rose and scarlet robins, speckled
warbler plus gang gang and painted button-quail. The latter als seen at Isaac
ridge nr a fortnight ago.
