I am considering a trip to see my only remaining Grasswren, the Black 
Grasswren, but I have been considering combining it with a trip to see the 
vagrant Red-legged Crake as well.  I have limited time and would probably fly 
into Broome and hire a car from there.   

Firstly, I would be interested in anyone that might be interested in joining us 
on the trip and sharing costs.   I intend car camping, travelling light and 
intend heading off in a week or two.  I don't have much time available to me so 
it will be a short sharp trip - say a week maximum.

Secondly, I would appreciate any information anybody can provide on the 

Details of likely and easily accessible sites for finding Black Grasswren? 
Will I need a 4WD to access the site?  
Contact details for the owner/manager of properties if access is required?
Is there anybody I should contact directly for information before heading up 
Thanks in advance for any assistance anybody can provide. I shall be away for 
the next few days out west but shall look forward to any information, anybody 
can provide.
