Hi all,
I spent my last day on the Birdsville Track travelling out to Kalamurina 
station (about 65km nw of Mungarannie) to see the Warburton Creek (the 
extension of the Diamantina in full flow).  It started spilling into Lake Eyre 
on Thursday.  The second flush of the Creek hadn't  reached Kalamurina yet, but 
it has reached Clifton Hills, 2-3 stations further upstream.
I went to the Stony Crossing, about 10 km from the homestead, and in 40+* heat 
spent about an hour wandering  around.  I got a list of about 12 species 
including White-winged Fairy-wren (which looked black until seen in sunlight 
and at a good angle), and Chirrupping Wedgebill.
