George Chapman and I spent some time in Central Australia last week. Among 
finds were a number of families of Cinnamon Quail-thrush on the road to 
Henbury Meteorite Craters, not far before the picnic area. Dusky Grasswrens 
were seen at Santa Teresa Road and inside Gosse's Bluff Crater and Striated 
Grasswren in front of the sunset viewing car park at Uluru. The highlight 
was a day with Mark Carter, who seemed to know where to find everything, 
including Flock Bronzewings, which came in to drink at a dam north of Alice 
Springs not long 
before dusk.
According to Mark the Uluru site is at present the only accessible and 
dependable place for the Striated Grasswrens in the Territory.
