Niven Mccrie posted a message on how he, Roger Jaensch and one other birder
got the big trifecta of red goshawk AND grey falcon And letter-winged kite
all in the space of a few hours.

Ian Clayton drew my attention to the red goshawk flying over Kingfisher
Park, Julatten when we were there on 2 April 1994 and they were seen in the
Kimberley by a pair 
of Townsville birders around this time last year. 

But let's not turn this into some North v South scrap; that's what State of
Origin rugby is for.  My original posting asked if a bag of 10 raptor
species was a possible record (now we know that it's not) and whether other
countries could equal or better this.  Then I'll know which country to flee
to whilst the Sydney Olympics are on.
