those of us who spent the weekend at Ben Boyd were horrified by the extent of a controlled burn in the heath just last week - and a ranger confirmed the fire had got away from them. There is now an ABC news story about this  "controlled" burn which mentions the extent of the devastation of the habitat of the ground parrots, southern emu wrens and other heathland birds. It also mentions the "group of birdwatchers" but doesn't say we expressed our concerns re the extent of the fire.
