Hi All,

I am not sure whether there has been a post on this already in 2013, but a 
quick search of the archives didn't find anything so I thought I should provide 
an update.

I visited Mt Lyndhurst Station on 16/17 Jul and prior to arriving used the most 
recent contact details I could find (0417 824 879 or 08 8757 4061) which got me 
through to 'Bill'. He said he was no longer the contact person for access and 
gave me a new phone number, 08 8675 7796. This number got me through to the 
actual station and Ian Lawton, who along with Paul Cleland is one of the 
station owners. I am not sure of the complete background, but Ian made it clear 
he was not happy about previous access arrangements. However, he did grant me 
permission to access the property and also to camp (I camped near the rusty 
car). Ian stressed that it was a working pastoral station, and that he couldn't 
have birders just wandering around the property. He said he was happy to grant 
access, and also happy for me to provide these new contact details on 
birding-aus, but would like birders to contact the station prior to arrival, 
preferably providing 2 weeks notice. 

Reading between the lines, it would seem that as a community we birders have 
some 'fences to mend' with this relationship, so please ensure that we or 
anyone we know who is visiting the area contacts the station before attempting 
to access the two sites on Mount Lyndhurst - permission should not be assumed, 
in spite of the site's popularity.

Regards and good birding!
