It seems Russell's fear that this game would generate lots of mail were
unfounded.  In the last few days there have been just 7 guesses - about half
of that Harvey Perkins' list attracted.  The list appears again below.

The guesses were as follows:

Angahook-Lorne State Park, around Lorne in the Otway Ranges, SW Victoria -
Jack Krohn, John Boyce, Harvey Perkins and Russell Woodford.

Airey's Inlet, near the eastern edge of Angahook-Lorne SP, eastern Otway
Ranges, SW Victoria - Steve Clark.

Ralph Illedge Sanctuary, west of the Otways towards Warrnambool - Andrew

Nelson, SW Victoria - Lorraine Phelan.

So the winner is Lorraine Phelan.  My list was accumulated around Deutschers
canoe camp on the Glenelg River, in Lower Glenelg National Park near Nelson,
SW Victoria in March 2000.  The Rufous Bristlebird, Rose Robin, Forest Raven
and Gang-gang Cockatoo seemed to draw people irresistibly to the Otway
Ranges (as I suspected it might!!), but all of these are relatively abundant
in Lower Glenelg too - though as Harvey noted, some are on the western edge
of their range there.  The slew of waterbirds is the real clue.  Lower
Glenelg is about the only place where these can be simultaneously recorded
with wet forest birds.  I can't think of too many places in the Otways where
this list could be compiled within a few hundred metres - maybe Lake
Elizabeth near Barwon Downs.

Thanks for playing.

Cheers -- Lawrie
