Peter Ewin raised an issue I was going to raise myself.  In lots of cases it's comparing apples with oranges.  Just how large an area are we talking about.  Someone suggested Cape York - a mighty big area.  Compare this with the Capertee Valley -  something like 40 km by 20 km with 240 species accepted on my checklist of the valley's birds.  Even the suggested 2 hours from Griffith (generally quite acceptable) is a lot different from the Capertee Valley where the entire valley can be accessed within 30 minutes from the location where I stay when in the valley with most of the better birding spots being 15 minutes or less away.

I'll be posting something about my weekend in the valley leading a Cumberland Bird Observers Club outing later today or tomorrow (when I get time).
