Many people on this list, and birders in NSW particularly, would be aware of Judie Peet.

Judie lost her battle with lung cancer last night.

Judie was a regular contributor to this list before she became ill, was a stalwart of the Dubbo Field Naturalists Club and a champion of woodland birds in western NSW.  She was coordinator of a joint Birds Australia/NSW NPWS Woodland Birds project and had a real knack of "educating" and enthusing the public.  She had a regular spot on ABC Central West and Western Plains Radio for a while which was extremely popular and always had the switchboard lighting up with people relating tales of the birds they had visiting their gardens and properties.

Recently, State Forests named a dam in Goonoo State Forest near Dubbo.  Birders from around NSW attended the dedication ceremony.

Judie was a dear friend and birdwatching in western NSW, particularly, will be much the poorer with her loss.
