I've replied to Keith Brandwood directly re: the dates for our surveys next
year, but thought I would take the opportunity to announce them on Birding-Aus
too. Firstly, apologies again for not replying to Keith sooner following his
initial email on Tuesday but I've been in the Capertee Valley for the last week
with Chris Tzaros doing fieldwork. As most would know mobile phone and email
coverage is virtually non-existent there so we're only just back in touch with
the world again today.
To the dates - as has been the tradition for a number of years the surveys will
be conducted on the third weekend in May and first weekend in August. So for
2012 the survey weekends are May 19-20 and August 4-5.

Thanks to all who continue to support the recovery of these two fantastic
