 Dear all, I'd just like to say a huge thankyou to everyone who responded to my 
plea for help - I'm in a exceedingly expensive internet cafe in Kalgoorlie at 
the moment so am not able to reply personally at the moment, but I very much 
appreciate the trouble you all took to respond. Hopefully I'll be able to make 
good use of the info you sent! cheers, Richard

Hi all,
I am a British birder currently on a round Australia trip. I would greatly appreciate some advice on where to find a few species that are currently eluding me. I am in Esperance at the moment, about to start heading east through South Australia and Victoria, ultimately heading back to sydney.

Western/Mallee Whipbird - I got within feet of a calling bird at the Fitzgerald River but didn't manage to catch a single glimpse! The Thomas and Thomas book seems to suggest that Lincoln NP in SA is a good site to try, but I can't find any more recent info on sightings there. Any recent info on this site or any other good places to try in SA?

Malleefowl - Dipped miserably in WA, was wondering if there are any reliable current spots in SA/VIC

Freckled Duck - Any current spots in SA

Black/White-fronted/Painted/Regent Honeyeaters - any currently good areas for these in SA/VIC

Spotless/Baillon's Crakes - Not mega rarities I know, but I can't seem to find any! Any good current spots in SA/VIC/NSW would be greatly appreciated.

A big thanks in advance for any information anyone can give.

My excite email address occasionally seems to bounce emails for no good reason, so if anyone PMs me, i suggest also ccing in
