By far the most worrying thing about this is not the Black-throated Finches but 
the statement "planning to build an open cut coal mine in the Bimblebox Nature 
Refuge near Alpha. "

What exactly IS a Nature Refuge then???


PS Despite our several long visits to Oz the Black-throated Finch also eluded 

PPS The Australian economy must be one of the healthiest in the world at the 
moment if the exchange rate is anything to go by - I don't think you really 
need a new mine just yet!
