Walked from Mt Gillen to the towers at heavitree gap this morning and approx 
one and a half to two kilometres west of the towers, flushed a spinifex bird 
from spinifex.  May have been an immature as no rufous cap distinguishable(long 
cocked rounded tail, white eyebrow, whitish throat, skulkling behaviour).

It is a tough walk just on the off chance of seeing a spinifex bird, but it may 
mean that after the fires some years back that the spinifex specialities(rufous 
crowned emu wren and spinifex bird) may be coming back to the ranges.
