When I first heard about the GHL, I was on an overseas birding trip and cursing 
my luck for being away at such an inopportune time. However, when I arrived 
back in Sydney on July 1st and found that the bird was still around, Louise and 
I decided to head up to Burren Junction, jet-lagged or not.
We left Sydney at 05.00 yesterday (Wed 5th July) and at 12.45pm after 622kms, 
we rolled into Burren Junction and saw the bird foraging close (about 15m) to 
the road opposite the silos before we had even stopped the car. The purpose of 
this posting is, a) to let Rohan add two more twitchers to his tally and, b) to 
record that this was the 700th species for my Australian list. What a cracking 
bird with which to pass that milestone!
