I've chosen aesthetic rather than fundemental hightlights - 
these include:

* Walking in through Mangroves to see an Osprey's nest - 
only to discover I was surrounded by a number of shark and 
ray (Magnetic, Qld). 

* Having an Olive-backed Oriole set up residence in my 
small back yard (Melb - Northcote, Vic). 

* Staying at a holiday house in Wye River and having a 
family of Rufous Bristlebird share our lodgings (Vic). 

* Putting up with the calls of Bush-stone Curlew night 
after night while staying at Magnetic Island (Qld) - four 
of them roosted only a few feet away!

* Banyule Wetlands 1999 (Melb, Vic). 

* Townsville Town Common (Qld). 

Happy NYE,
