Dear B-A's
I forgot to mention what I dipped on.  Just as interesting a list as those I 

Scarlet-chested Parrot - Gluepot.  I arrived 2 days after they were last seen 
flying over the airstrip.  Thanks to Peter Waanders for his regular updates
Inland Dotterel - Ned's Corner.  I missed it on the night we stayed there and 
again about a week later when I did a 160+km spotlighting trip from where we 
were camped in Murray-Sunset.
Striated Grasswren - Saw one at Gluepot but as the trip was primarily to add to 
my vic list I dipped on it at Hattah although I was with a group of researchers 
that saw them but missed out.
Malleefowl - Looked hard around all the mallee parks but missed out.  Even got 
desperate and went to Little Desert Lodge but they only had captives there.
Spotted Harrier - how could I travel so many back roads in ideal habitat and 
not see even 1????

Yours in all things "green"
