Locally  my most fond 1999 memory is of a very confiding female
Scarlet Robin, which I was able to show to a friend: my 150th
species in Bayside.

It was also great that my group - the Friends of Native
Wildlife, in association with Bayboca -  identified some more
Superb Fairy-wren nests and now have the evidence to withdraw
from their stance that the introduced boxthorn is crucial to the
local survival of the species.

I had three serious birding days out of the area: magic views of
White-browed Babblers (and a tree goanna) in the Little Desert,
lovely Hooded Plover chicks and some waders I hadn't seen
before.  But I was so tired from heaving shells to help
regenerate a Fairy Tern nesting site that I don't remember what
they were !
