Published sightings for the week ending 5 Aug 2012.

Sat 4 Aug Dusky Grasswren Emily Gap
Several birds active on creekbed and adjacent rocks at the northern end of the gap at 10.30am, with prolonged views of one trio. A pleasant surprise to see grasswrens at this site, and even more surprising to see them right down on the sand.
