Yes, I should join.  In 1983 I found a fresh road kill Grey Falcon just
north of Coober Pedy.  I still have a yellowing letter from the SA Museum to
prove that it was not a hallucination.  Yet despite many thousands of km
travelled in the arid zone I failed to see a live one.  Sean Dooley should
not complain about one trip up the Plenty Highway without success, I have
made many.

Monday I was at Newhaven and saw "Grey Falcon Robs Bore" chalked on a
blackboard.  I set off at once, but still no Grey Falcon.

Most species I blunder onto sooner or later, this one just eludes me.
