Edwin posted his sightings to birding-aus about the Capertee Valley.  There
are two things that I think need to be mentioned.

The first is that there is accommodation in the valley that can be procured
for less than $55 a night and, in my humble opinion far superior to that
mentioned by Edwin.  The people offering this accommodation also actively
assist with the recovery effort for the Regent Honeyeater in the valley and,
again in my humble opinion, should be rewarded all things being equal (and
as I have said, they come out ahead anyway!).

The colour-banded Regent that Edwin saw was probably banded by myself in the
valley this spring.  Unfortunately the details received are incomplete.
Could people seeing colour-banded Regents p[lease bear in mind that there
should be two bands on each leg.  A colour-band and a metal (silver) band on
one leg and two colour bands on the other.  It is important to note which
legs the bands are on and which colour is above the other.  I am happy,
however, to receive all colour combinations regardless of whether they are
complete or not.

Edwin, I would like details of the Satin Flycatcher, if possible, as there
are rare in the valley.

Thanks to Judie Peet for sending this message to me, currently off
birding-aus while currently engaged in field work in the Capertee Valley.
