Since Julian's useful suggestion below there has been little reporting of
the  DWS, although an interesting report was the one by Margaret Robertson
of 6 at the Palmerville Heritage Park, Belconnen, on 30 June  (early or
late?).  If we are going to make any progress with this (ie the movement of
the species in the Canberra area) the next 8 weeks is the  critical time to
look for them.  After that reports of sightings should bear a 'Me Too'
warning in the heading.

About Duskies - and with apologies to those who disagree with this 
hotly debated possibility - I think that the single best way of 
leading towards a quick initial understanding of what goes on with 
them at the Canberra end is for people to post about all the DWSs 
they see on this chatline for one season; say another 6 or 7 
months.  Then if/when they disappear it can be determined 
retrospectively by looking for the last post for the season.   Or 
some reasonable conclusions might be drawn about numbers and even 
spatial distribution of those that hang around as well as those that move
