Hi all
as threatened last week, with my RFI for Port Macquarie, I have set out
below a list of species that my Dad has on his "watch list" when he is
visiting from the UK over the next three weeks.  As you will see below, I
have a few sites in mind for some where I have seen the birds myself, but
any recent sightings or good locations in the Sydney area gratefully
received, and I'll let you know how we get on if we get out to anywhere
I'm not sure where our trips will take us (or how often my Mum will let us
out as she wants to see me too!) and we won't be able to do any huge walks,
rock climbing etc, but I've spread my net fairly wide as you can see below.
(Note - KRG = Ku-Ring-gai Nat Park, which is close to my house.)
Many thanks
Tom Wilson
