Dear Birding Aus Folks,

Since our previous postings regarding the
redevelopment of this area and the effects on the
remaining indigenous birdlife, we were fortunate
indeed to be visited by the man in charge, 'Royal Park
Officer' Greg Thorpe. You will all be pleased to know
that Greg is very interested in the birds of Royal
Park and is eager to ensure their long term survival /
viability. Firstly though,  he would like to know what
birds are present, in what numbers, and in which
habitats within the park. He would like to hear from
anyone who has been or is now birdwatching there - he
needs your birdlists (however simple) to help him
build a picture of what birds live in or pass through
the park.

He wants to continue to generate interest in the
potential of Royal Park to introduce local and
overseas visitors to our wonderful plants and
wildlife, including birds of course.

So over to you folks, please help Greg achieve his
very laudable aims! He has asked us to request
assistance through Birding Aus, and to this end here
is his email so you can all start firing off your
Royal Park lists to him. 

If the computer age is beyond any potential
contributors his postal address is:
G. Thorpe, Royal Park Officer
Melbourne City Council

Royal Park is about 3km North of Melbourne's centre.

P.S. Greg says Gang Gangs were seen a few weeks ago in
the Royal Park Native Gardens off Gatehouse St.
