I've just had a message from Keith Barnes in South Africa to say that the
long-distance tern even made it into the papers over there!

A sad counterpoint to the news of the tern being found in Gippsland is
that the East Gippsland forests received another body-blow today, with the
annoncement of new 'forest management practices' which allow the
commercial logging of these forests.  Guess we needn't look for too many
long-distance migrants (e.g. cuckoos, passerines, etc) in a few years'

Am I being too gloomy?  Are we really going to be better off with these
new logging schemes?  I'll take some convincing.  It seems the bulk of the
population here in Victoria, sadly, are a little more easily fooled.
