Hello counters,

I have received messages, emails etc. from NSW this afternoon saying that the 
central coast of NSW is experiencing a deluge.  The rain is apparently so bad 
that no-one has a chance of seeing anything much, and its not likely to let up. 
By all means chase up your sites either during the week or next weekend. The 
Vic/SA count will continue as before, and I'm not sure what the weather is 
on the NSW inland slopes, I'm assuming its OK.  It is obviously better to have 
the Vic/NSW coast counts at slightly different times than to have no NSW coast 
records because everyone there was kept inside by torrents of rain, and in any 
case, one could probably assume that a group of Regents or Swifties at 
Lononderry on the 12th are not recounts of birds seen at Bailieston on the 
Maybe it will clear up Sunday.

Please keep me posted on the weather.

Simon K
