Hi all. Following on from a very cordial 'phone conversation with Terry Pacey last week, I would like to commend him on his actions in actually getting Clifton Hill Mgt to listen and to take our comments and disappointment into consideration for future decisions regarding access. Maybe there is some light at the end of the tunnel after all, but let's not too carried away, that's only one pastoral lease out of many closing off access. Be assured that the mgt committee of the SAOA is taking the changed legislation seriously and is making overtures to the appropriate minister and shadow minister , and will approach Clifton Hills directly as well - especially now that Terry has got the door half open. But again this only concerns the closures in SA, you others in other states ( ie Queensland) still have your own backyards to sort out, unfortunately it seems on an individual basis. I still think it disappointing that our leading national bird organisation chooses to distance itself from the issue, but again commend Terry for getting as far as he has.

   There's nothing quite like the feeling of seeing a new bird is there?
