A short note to 'birding-aussers'

I've just been contacted by a birdo (not on this list) who became aware of a
recent posting detailing the location of a breeding threatened bird in her
patch.  She was a bit dismayed about this being 'broadcast' at such a sensitive

I thought it worthwhile to gently remind people that exact localities in such
situations may be putting some nesting birds at risk.  Maybe general localities
are better.

Off my soapbox now.

Any advice for a 'southerner' who's going to Brisbane & Lamington Park for the
day (!).
