Many thanks to all those birders who expressed their support.
We are near the Tallebudgera Creek Environmental Park, Gold Coast, Qld.

The problem remains. How can we find leverage over the local council to  
get them to enforce the existing by-law of dogs on leash.

Does anyone have a polite, assertive speech to give any dog owner found 
maurauding their leashless pooch?

This is a mixed mangrove/casuarina/eucalypt/grassland estuary for which 
we have a bird species list of about 140 including a recent sighting of 
the Brown Quail. The park is adjacent to a main road, on the otherside 
of which is residential housing. One of these is my father who walks the 
park daily and maintains an on-going bird list. Several neighbours walk 
their dogs (German Sheperds and similar) on and off leash.

The response of the councillor to faxes from my father has been to 
increase the number of 'Dogs on leash' signs in the park.

Once again many thanks for your encouragement

Stuart Collins in Palm Beach, Qld
