| Hi Birders,
| Bette Mitchell has inferred that there are some concerns that the number
| Kelp Gulls are increasing in Victoria and other people have indicated
| this fact may have a detrimental influence on the number of Pacific Gulls
| overall. In New South Wales, since the NSWFOC have been producing their
| Annual Bird Report from 1970 onwards, there has been an increasing number
| Pacific Gulls seen here. In 1995, there more observations of Pacific
| than ever before and they were seen at 11 sites from Eden to Botany Bay,
| while in 1997 one was seen for the firt time at Newcastle.
