Hello all

You probably thought that I'd forgotten or abandoned the 
Plainswanderer weekend for birding-aus readers .... NO!!!

Sorry - I've had a few other things to do - but now I'm about to 
finalise the dates.

I already have a list of people wanting to go.  It will almost 
certainly be the weekend of 20-21 September (from Sat noon to Sun mid 
afternoon).  There is a slight chance we may have to move to the 
following weekend (27/28).  Cost is $180 per person, twin share ($25 
single supp) and includes accommodation, meals & transport during that 
period, though you have to get yourself to Deniliquin, NSW.

The weekend is of course led by Phil & Patricia Maher, who should need 
no introduction to birding-aus readers.  They have very kindly offered 
to run a trip for us - their scheduled trips are almost, if not 
completely, booked for this year.  What would you be likely to see?

Plainswanderer, Superb Parrot, Striped Honeyeater, Stubble Quail, 
Black Falcon, Gilbert's Whistler, Diamond Firetail, Bush 
Stone-Curlew, Banded Lapwing, Brown Songlark, Singing Bushlark, 
White-winged Fairy-wren, Blue Bonnet.
Australian Bittern and Painted Honeyeater are less likely than in 
December, but possible.

At this stage we have 3 or 4 places, so get in touch with me a.s.a.p.
Phone:  03 52758089
Mobile: 0419 395100

We need to finalise it all by early next week, so please give me a 
call if you would like to be added to the group.
