Hi Nick ( or anyone else ), is there any info regarding how long Brindle
Creek Road might be closed?  And what is the status of Wangaree Forest Road?

Thursday morning saw us back at the Border Ranges chasing the bristlebird
which we eventually had great views of, followed by another crack at the
scrubbird which was not as vocal as yesterday and unfortunately got away.
The Brindle Creek road is currently closed so we couldn't access the
territories at the top of the mountain, and unfortunately we ended up
dipping on the scrubbird. We did find a few other nice birds though with
Rose Robins and Albert's Lyrebirds in full voice, and Logrunners also
active. From the Border Ranges it was south to Grafton, then a whirlwind
visit to Washpool NP for one of our target birds, Superb Lyrebird. We found
one easily, with a young  male foraging unconcerned within metres of us
along the aptly named Lyrebird Trail. That night a search for Powerful Owl
around Grafton was unproductive with strong winds hampering our efforts.
