You may or may not have noticed that the PCUG ISP
suffered a major crash on last week-end, and everyone with a
pcug email (like you and I) went off-air for about 3 to 4 days.
This was fixed on Tuesday, so I'm not sure if there was another issue with
yours. We have had several instances of Painted Button-quail in Canberra suburbia lately. It is curious
that this has happened and not before recently. As in there were none for the
GBS whole first 21 years. Is this a delayed set of refugees from fires or maybe
fires plus the work on the Gungahlin Drive Extension? I'm only guessing. A nice
and pleasant surprise for the garden list though.
