Hi Edwin,
     I've seen a huge feral tabby off Mayfair Rd in Mulgoa, as well as foxes.
     The  Rural Lands Protection Board (the old Pastures Protection Board) is holding workshops on trapping and otherwise controlling these menaces to birdlife at Luddenham ( about 10 km south of Penrith on yhe Northern Rd.) on Saturday May 26th, at "Hubertus Country Club", Adams Rd.  Phone (02) 4655 9165 for details.
     Southern Whiteface, Hooded Robin, Speckled Warbler, Bush Thick-knee, White-throated Nightjar, Spotted Quail-thrush (still seen in the Blue Mountains National Park and Bent's Basin nearby) possibly Diamond Doves and other ground on near ground frequenting species would almost certainly repopulate areas such as Mulgoa Nature Reserve if cats foxes and dogs were kept out of those areas.
