 Hi Netters,

border with SA, we received this from a "landowner". "I don't want you
finding any rare birds on my property as I don't want hassles with the
National Parks wanting to take some of my property."  Michael this maybe
reason why they refuse you entry."

 I feel David is absolutely right because I have had many similar
experiences. I have a white Landcruiser Troopy and landholders are
always suspicious of it as they think it is a Government vehicle.
Several times when I have driven in to a property to ask permission to
bird-watch I have had a hard time convincing the owners that I have no
connection with the Government. A lot of them are paranoid about loosing
their property, or having to comply with some imagined restrictions if a
new or rare species is found on it.
