Hi Graeme
Emailing from Glen Helen NT before ascending Mt Sonder very early tomorrow 
morning to watch the sunrise.
After reading the most recent Birdlife Mag article on Grasswrens I decided in 
my central and northern Australia trips each southern winter to add Grasswrens 
to my must photograph list.
You may remember you sent me some info on the Black Grasswren in the Mitchell 
Falls locality for a trip I'm starting in July. 
Thought I'd start easy with the Grasswrens and locate and photograph the Dusky 
around Alice Springs before walking the Larapinta Trail. Not so easy.....lucked 
out at Mt Gillen twice then also at Simpsons Gap. 
However, in my trekking along the Larapinta I've come across four colonies of 
the Duskys  on the trail edge and am happy as I've managed to get some shots of 
each! Just a pity they like living in Spinifex areas and I'm wearing shorts and 
only had ankle gaiters.
Whilst not as colourful as the Fairy Wrens, they've beautiful in their own 
right. I look forward to the hopefully photographing the other eleven?
