Hi Graeme & Carl,

I'm afraid I beat Carl to it (being the only person alive whose first
grasswren was a White-throated):
On 5 Sept 1996, I casually wandered up the Gunlom escarpment in the mid-day
heat, wearing shorts & thongs (flip-flops for our international readers)
and found two birds unperturbed by my presence, allowing photographs:
These were my first Grasswrens ever and I've been additcted to Grasswren
ever since....
