            Green Pygmy-Geese still on Poona Dam this (Fri) morning. Very
easy to find as dam is small and rectangular with few hiding spots.I also
found a Latham's Snipe on far edge.
         The New Atlas shows sightings of Green Pygmy -Goose in three SEQ
locations.One appears to be near Brisbane, another west of Brisbane (?
Atkinson Dam in Lockyer Valley a few years ago?). The Fauna Watch "Fauna
Lists for 30 sites around the Sunshine Coast" doesn't list them in the
index, but I have a dim memory of them being seen at Lake McDonald, Cooroy
many years ago.
          Had the wonderful surprise of a Richmond's Birdwing fluttter-by
our verandah yesterday, our first sighting on the the Range (have only ever
seen them on the lowlands).
