This is a reminder for all birdos visiting or living in coastal se 

I have recently heard second hand that some Regent Honeyeaters were 
apparently observed near Bairnsdale in East Gippsland.  The observer 
thought they could have been nesting and had been near his home for over 
six weeks.

With the current drought conditions and fires in southern Australia it's 
possible that birds will be turning up in more coastal environments than 
in other years.

Please keep a careful eye and ear out for this endangered species.  Should 
anyone come across the species they should IMMEDIATELY telephone or 
contact David Geering (details below) who records all observations.

Be sure to pay special attention to 
- any evidence of leg bands and 
- what colour combination these bands have.
