Thanks Nick, caught up with a lifer at Eulo Bore on 31/03 when I saw the CBQT 
at the same site.  The ridge line starts just short of 5km from the bore as it 
rises up from the flat and the bird was on top and at the start of the ridge 
line through to about 200m along the top from this point (approx 200metres off 
the road).  I saw it poorly initially at the end (start?) of the ridge where I 
flushed it twice, then later after losing it in low scrub it ran across an old 
track at the top of the ridge line about 200m further east and not being able 
to find it again I got better views on my return to the same area after about 
40 minutes of looking at other birds whilst it skulked around in the 
undergrowth trying to avoid me.  It then flew back to where I had seen it 
first, so I left it in peace.
I also headed out west on the Inaminka Road to the oil fields and the lower 
Cooper Creek in a vain search for the Grey Grass-wren (bitumen all the way, 
albeit a lot of single lane).  The area still has plenty of water with 300mm 
flowing over the road in places where the channels cross it.  Of course the 
place is very green with hundreds if not thousands of Black-tailed Native Hens 
enjoying the abundance of life the water has brought (walking in a shallow 
channel off the road I flushed at least 300!) .  Pin in a haystack as far as 
Grey Grass-wren goes though!
