You wrote in part, "at
The Crater, hoping for our last two Atherton endemics, Fernwren and Chowchilla.
Heard the former, but both eluded us, despite plenty of bashing off the main
paths. Were treated to a good performance by half a dozen lekking Victoria?s
Riflebirds. Although all were youngsters it was an impressive spectacle with
them just a few yards above us. Whilst here we got our only Lemon-bellied
Flycatcher, and several of the endemics were seen."
Please stay on the paths. Erosion in this high rainfall
area is exacerbated by people short cutting and bush bashing. You might only do
it once but you are not the only person to visit this park.
If you will still talk to me after that public wrap over
the knuckles, I wish to discourage others from following suit,
could you please provide details of the Lemon-bellied Flycatcher. This would be
a most unusual record!
P.S. for those chasing Chowchilla, go to Lake Barrine and
start on the circuit track in a clock wise direction within two hours after
sunrise or an hour before sunset. Success rate 95% in the first
