Hi all
I have been tracking the fairly recent messages about what's been seen in and around Alice Springs. I will be travelling with my family for 10 days from Alice Springs to W & E McDonnells (Glen Helen & Ross River respectively), Kings Canyon & then Uluru in a couple of weeks time, and was looking for pointers on anything unusual that may be about because of the recent rain and also specific spots for the following target species that I have missed in prior visits or want to get a better look at:

Slaty Backed Thornbill
Rufous Crowned Emu Wren
Banded Whiteface
Pied and/or Black Honeyeaters
Grey Honeyeater
Painted Firetail
Ground Cuckoo Shrike

I'm not planning on visiting the Sewerage works or Kunoth Well unless there's something extremely super duper (like a Red Legged Crake?) - this is a family holiday after all and I have to draw the line somewhere as to how much I can impose, especially when around Alice and we are in a campervan so I can't slip away as easily in the early hours of the day.
Good spots where we can enjoy a walk together would be an advantage!
Assurances that the weather is going to warm up a bit would also be welcome!

Many thanks
