Hello Birders,

As a matter of interest, does anyone know the current status of the
Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs) on Lord Howe Island?  Morcombe (2000)
p.428 refers to it as " common". Hutton in "Birds of Lord Howe Island -
Past and Present" (1991) p.148 describes it as a "rare visitor". I know
that Chaffinches were introduced to New Zealand long ago, and I assume
that what Hutton says is still correct. Or has there been a population
explosion on LHI?
