To Greg and others looking for info in relation to Alice Springs the only bird 
off of Greg's list that I can give info on is chiming wedgebill-a couple of kms 
east of Emily Gap birds are plentiful, many crested bellbirds, diamond doves 
and budgeriagars.  Chiming wedgebill heard on right hand side of road facing 
east but not located.
Other birds of interest were last week orange chat on Maryvale road, just below 
airport and spotted harrier.

Of interest today was that I was returning from Amata(on the APY lands 
northwestern SA)  today and there had been 4- 5 hours of rain last night, 
forming large puddles on teh road, between Amata and Umuwa.  There were three 
hoary heade grebes each with their own mini-lake(in other words singly) and 
they would either fly to the next puddle or dive under until we had passed.  
They were certainly quick off of the mark-they were certainly quick off of the 
mark in getting there.  There were also some teal duck, assumedly grey teal, 
but seen from travelling vehicle in light rain I couldn't be sure.
