Still hopeful we pushed on and 50 km from CC we stopped at a dune that had excellent canegrass along its crest north and south. After less than five minutes north of the road we detected six Eyrean Grasswrens in company with a smaller number of WW Fairywrens. These birds are very distinctive, very rufous above and white below, and altogether ripper birds. We watched them for some time, and although they were curious, perching high in the bushes to watch us, they wouldn't let us get very near. There was no point chasing them further along the dune, so we left them. (GPS 28 55 56, 146 24 45)

 John, should your GPS reading be 140 not 146?
