Hi Tim,

I have found at least a dozen or so Spiny Cheeked H/E late last year at Organ 
Pipes N/P.This being my most recent observation.As for the Regent H/E, i 
couldnt get an accurate assessment of the bird because of the glare and the
fact it was 38 degrees!.But after talking to the reserve manager we deemed it 
as definitely inconclusive, after all he said the last documented sighting was 
ten years ago!
