Hi Edwin,

               Steve's Royal NP guide does include some of the vagrants that have turned up in the  park from time to time including Black Honeyeater which was recorded breeding in 1902!! But most of them are birds that are fairly frequent or have been seen in recent years.

>It has been boasted on the radio today (on Sydney's newest radio station Nova 96.9), that despite the thought of many people thinking that our birdlife is on the decline in Australia's largest city, bird watchers can be happy to find that Sydney's Royal National Park has around 279 species.
>I have not yet obtained Steve's new book on the Royal NP, which mentions the 279 species. I suppose this number of species may include some vagrants! Can anyone comment?
>I have made a list of birds in my local shire - Blacktown shire and have currently a list of 206 species (over 90 percent would have been seen in the last 10 years. Has anybody else made a list of the birds of their own shire/local area?.
