Thanks Greg - a big help as I'm heading for the Mallee Emu Wren and 
Short-tailed Grasswren sites (both would be lifers) as I head up to the Alice 
from Brisbane.  
Currently at Corowa after catching up with 4 Painted Snipe at the Coreen site 
earlier today - they were flushed from the grass between the road and the swamp 
which is only a few hundred metres south of the Coreen township sign on the 
southern side of town.  This is a particularly great find for me as I missed it 
at the BA 100th in Adelaide when it was seen at Pt Noarlunga on a field trip 
and I left the Alice the same day as it was seen at the Ponds there!  I thought 
I was doomed never to see one.  Added to the SIPO in Brisbane, it has been a 
great trip so far.
Heading for Chiltern tomorrow and hopefully another lifer - Regent Honeyeater.
