g'Day Nick

During the late afternoon of a very windy 6th September 2001, approx.1
km. nnw of the well known "old car body" site,  I located a small flock
of 5 CBWF at S 30'.12".062, E 138'.36".455, which is a slatey
watercourse in the saddle of a hill, about half way up the southern
aspect of the range.

It was too windy to hear any calls but the birds were easily seen when
feeding on the ground near bluebush where they allowed brief views at
close range.  Before long they flew off some distance to the west
towards the old copper mine.  I spent the next half day walking across
the area but failed to locate any more..

Not far south actually in the main salt bush (chenepod) watercourse at
the bottom of the slope next to the track, were a group of at least 4
Thick-billed Grasswrens.  They were feeding partly fledged young at S
30'.12".190, E 138'.36".397.   These readings are based on map datum
"Aust Geod 84"

Unfortunately I haven't got co-ordinates for Short-tailed Grasswren
sites at Willow Springs.

Good birding and regards
