Hi Harvey,

This is a quick (& desperate) email with regards to the proposal to dam our Williams River at Tillegra. Under Hunter Water's project planning requirements (it hasn't yet been approved by the state government) of course they have to refer to the federal EPBC legislation - the document is out for public comment and anyone interested in this has 2 weeks to comment. This is link to the site.

Please forward on to anyone you think might be interested.

A few weeks ago on an orchid checking expedition up in Pilcher's Gorge we were swooped then entertained by a pair of Peregrine Falcons - defending their territory I suppose. They were noisily and persistently harassing what they thought was a bird in a grass tree on the escarpment edge. Fantastic to see.

Anyway got to go more calls/emails to make.
Thanks mate,
See ya,

David Smith
