Hey Elliot,
Just a quick one re Eungella HE, if I may... Do you remember the time of year 
that you saw them at the very end of Dalrymple Rd, and also along Diggings Rd?? 
 Do you remember what they were feeding on when you saw them at both sites??

Thanx in advance for your advice - it's always good to get others' thoughts on 
a species that we don't really know all that much about...
