White-throated Grasswren was also my first grasswren at Gunlom in July 1992 on a 'Great Grasswren Tour' from Derby to Melbourne organised by Chris Doughty and Kevin Coate. A great trip. We all missed Black Grasswren at Manning Gorge (it had been burnt). About half of us saw WTGW at Gunlom. A few people saw Carpentarian Grasswren just north of Cape Crawford. We all got Dusky Grasswren at Simpsons Gap. We all got Grey Grasswren and Eyrean Grasswren (nesting) at Koonchera Sand Dunes / Goyders Lagoon. We all got Thick-billed Grasswren at Lyndhurst Station. A few of us saw Short-tailed Grasswren (Striated at the time) at Flinders Ranges. Noone saw Striated Grasswren at Hattah as it was very windy. The others were not split at the time. I think we travelled about 6,000km in three weeks and Common Myna was our 300th species as we entered Melbourne.
