Something to think about over Christmas!  Here is a list of rarities that
between the two of us need either NSW FOC or RAOU records appraisal
submissions completed.  Mmmm I think we will have to stay indoors for a
while? It makes you wonder what we will  turn up next year?   To think that
the highlight of the year for me was the honeymoon on Christmas Island and
the two overseas trips searching for Pittas in Thailand and Borneo.  Mind
you October was just  awesome.
