We're more efficient here Geoffrey: do it all in one go.  

Two less flippant points:
  1. I have recorded more species in my GBS site than in any other GBS year since we moved here.  Flame Robins were an addition last year and Rufous Songlarks this year.  The other notable increaser was White-winged Trillers.  I have no explanation for this which I see as counter-intuitive.
  2. We don't have a great amount of National Park or Nature Reserve which can be subject to official burns.  Yanununbeyan was lit up a few years ago and I suspect Cuumbeun will be soon when the new development happens after the by-pass is built

Yes Martin. The main issue relating to conserving  birds in the ACT, I’d have thought.  Maybe at Carwoola, too.

How on earth did you find that Geoffrey?  I'm sure it wasn't intended for the public to see such sensible stuff.  


I particularly liked the first (=highest priority???) entry under  "Component causes ..."
