Thanks for all the positive feedback about the Newhaven trips to those who
have posted; to Chris Watson for the great article on his Birds Central blog
and also Mark Carter for his astute commentary (from one who knows the
desert well).

In the last few weeks 43 people have visited Newhaven and seen the Princess
Parrots. All seem to be happy that their time in the desert and at Newhaven
was time well spent. 

The Princess Parrots on Newhaven are still here, though seem to be moving
around a bit more than when they were first seen 3 weeks ago. AWC staff and
volunteers will continue to escort interested parties to the area where the
parrots have been observed, however we will now only be doing so on certain
days (Sat-Tue weekly) so it is important to plan trips in advance and call
through to make bookings-(08) 8964 6000. We are collecting information on
behaviour, location and movements on every visit and hopefully by the time
the parrots decide to move off again, to roam the deserts, we will have
learned more about these enigmatic birds and will be able to share these
insights. Thankyou Peter and Toni for the wonderful effort you are putting
into hosting visitors and collecting information. Volunteers contributions
to our conservation efforts are important and greatly appreciated. At
Newhaven alone we are supported by up to 50 volunteers each year. we could
not do what we do without you (I know some of you will be reading this)!
Hope to see more visitors over the weeks to come.

Kind Regards,

Joe Schofield and Danae Moore
