Well it seems that my attempt to rattle the Hunter
and Central Coast Twitchathon teams failed to hit the mark with them
scooping the pools again. We got a modest 195 but considering it was all
within the one catchment and we were a new team I am quite happy with the
result. Nonetheless I am repairing my horse whip for next year to squeeze
that little bit extra from the team - including me.
We did get quality however with Bush Stone-Curlew,
Rufous Scrub-bird, Magpie Goose, Brolga, Pied Oystercatcher, Sooty
Oystercatcher, Coastal Emu, Comb-crested Jacana, Glossy Black-Cockatoo,
Grey-crowned Babbler, Paradise Riflebird and Regent Bowerbird. We started
the list with our totem - the Black-necked Stork.
So the planning for next year has started.
See you in 2005!
