Hello Tony
        I don't know about the survey originated by Arnold McGill , but the
Cumberland Bird Observers Club are actively promoting an ongoing survey
of the birds of the County of Cumberland, with a current database of
more than 20,000 records. The data from this excercise is in accordance
with the BIGNET protocol and is being supplied to the new ATLAS project.
There has been an enormous ammount of work in setting up this database
and CBOC are very keen for other clubs and individuals to contribute.
The more observers for this survey the better because there are many
grids within the county that have not been surveyed so far, or are not
being surveyed regularly. If anyone would like to contribute, Tony
Saunders, CBOC Records Officer, will supply the grid map, record sheets
and any other information that is required - phone 02 4759 2559.

Chris Shinton
Activities Officer CBOC
