Chris and all,
Australian Wildlife Sound Recording Group certainly does still exist. All
that happened was that Bill Rankin changed his email address. It is now:
We now have about 60 members, we still issue 2 CDs and 2 journals per year,
membership is now $26 pa. CD and journal are due out in June. Contact Bill
if you want to join the group.
