Donald, the friendly acknowledgment of your passion for Australian parrots, and 
the PP in particular, was intended. Themisspelling of your surname was 
unintended and unforgivable. Phonetics took over my brain and precision and 
courtesywas the loser. The birder's world! He gets the names of birds right and 
the names of people wrong. I was once the victimof a newspaper misspelling of 
my first name. A visually silent "g" made me the butt of many jokes.
I hope that you get the opportunity to return to PP country in conditions like 
those currently prevailing.Mark Carter's comments are most interesting. There 
is clearly an abundance of research still waiting in the Australian deserts.In 
my tour guiding as a volunteer at the London Wetland Centre, I tell visitors 
"never come here just once - the species, the colourand the mood of the reserve 
changes with every season". The same is even truer of the Australian Desert, 
but the time scales vastly differentAngus Innes.
