Yes Mick, the ABC should give you airtime since their shops stock your DVD ...

If they move 50 copies after your appearance, they might invite you back more often.

G'day Tim(s),

Another year, another Twitchathon hey. Indeed, good luck to all on the birding front and here's to some productive fundraising drives.

We have had a bit more success with our media efforts here in the Hunter (where "Twitchathon" is a household word these days), with ABC local radio inviting me to do a pre-twitch interview, as well as a post-twitch wrap-up on Tuesday - they initially asked me to do Monday morning...are they serious!?!? A cake drive or two at the office never goes astray either.

2/3 of the Hunter Home Brewers sought 'good oil' today (we're one man down this year after one team member embarked on an 'emergency surfing trip' to SE Asia). Things are looking pretty good in the Hunter.

So good in fact, that we have decided to be true to our name (all of it this time!) and stick to the local patch. Our aim is to be the first team ever to notch up 220 species all within the catchment of a single major river (no prizes for guessing which river). To do so we will need to nail all of those typically western birds that have spilt over the big hill this year (eg Native Hens, Masked Woodswallows, Black Honeyeater etc) whilst picking up the vast majority of the regular migrants and residents. I guess that's the idea!

We'll see how we go.
