Babbler query - western Victoria

A question for those birdos who have visited north west Victoria, 
especially the area north of Nhill / Little Desert.

I'm keen on people's sightings of Grey-crowned Babbler for this area.

The Atlas of Victorian Wildlife data suggests that GcBs are now very 
rarely observed in this area of Victoria.  I have been advised of a 
possible sighting of the species from 2005 near Yanac which is north west 
of Nhill.  The sighting seems odd to me due to the habitat but it's 
possible there is a relict population hanging on.

Would anyone who has visited this area advise me of their thoughts re the 
distribution of the species in mallee scrub / woodland type environments?

cheers, Martin
