Hi all,
I must agree with the majority on this. I live in the Sutherland shire , (Southern Sydney) and do a little walking and birding when time permits. Although I make frequent visits to places like the Royal National Park I rarely bump into other birders. In fact at the Royal I don't think I hae ever seen anyone with a pair of nocs - not a definitive test for birdos, obviously, but still a fair indication. I'm sure lots of birders go there, but my experience suggests that at any one time there is unlikely to be any more than one birder in the locality. This is despite the place often being packed with picnickers, strollers etc. Of course this very fact might be putting some birders off going there  but it is still a good place to see a varity of birds right on the edge of Sydney.
