Many of you would remember discussions from over a year ago about a Green 
in Victoria, while this record has not been accepted, there is a possibility of 
it being confirmed at a camp starting on the 26th of December, 2001.  Plus the 
opportunities to see many other birds.  The Field Naturalists Club of Victoria 
are holding a camp at Goolengook, the details of which are below and you can 
contact me for further details and directions.

This year, Field Naturalist Club survey at Christmas / New Years, is being held 
at Goolengook in East Gippsland.

Goolengook is infamous, as Australia?s longest running continuous forest rescue 
operation at over 5 years.  However more importantly it contains flora and 
populations, that have been described as globally significant and having a 
combination of significant biological values that are not known from any other 
forest block in South East Australia.  Even with these considerations, the area 
is still under threat from logging.

Goolengook is also one of two locations in Victoria, where cool and warm 
temperate rainforests overlap.  The area also contains large areas of emergent 
rainforest, and old growth forest.  It supports the largest and highest quality 
populations of the nationally rare Slender Tree Fern, supports and provides 
habitat for the Long-footed Potaroo and also supports and provides habitat for 
the Sooty and Powerful Owls and the Spot-tailed Quoll (all seen in the area by 
the author).  It is known to be a rich bird site.

The camp will provide opportunities for flora and fauna surveys, for all of the 
above species, plus the many other species known to be in this magnificent 
forest.   Plus a great chance to camp in a wonderful part of Victoria.  

If your interested in attending contact Paul Jones on 0427 100 119 or email 
 for further information and directions.
