While plaudits have rightly been handed out to Margaret Cameron and Andrew
Isles for their production of Australian Birding, great credit should also
be accorded the magazine's founder David Andrew. Inspired by the late John
McKean's Cosmic Flashes, David - a former editor of Wingspan - got the
magazine up and running at considerable expense and built up the "look" that
Margaret successfully built upon. It was a significant contribution to the
birding community and its folding is a sad loss.
I won't comment on the role of Birds Australia or even birding-aus in that
loss, but it seems to me that an online magazine will be the most likely
future publishing alternative.
