Sorry but Peter made me really giggle with this one: "we have recorded 24 rufous scrub-birds a few years ago, we recorded a poultry one yesterday". Dare I say I think you mean paltry! Or at least I hope you were not planning to eat it. Philip

    Hi Edwin and others

    on the topic of rainfall, we surveyed New England NP (near Dorrigo)
    yesterday, and despite Dorrigo receiving 300mm two weeks ago, I have
    never seen the rainforest so dry with humidity levels extremely
    low.  So
    much so, that where we have recorded 24 rufous scrub-birds a few
    ago, we recorded a poultry one yesterday.  There were fires nearby at

    It has been a similar story in other areas, Barrington/Gloucester
    was extremely dry, Border Ranges was likewise.  At present I am at
    Cunninghams Gap and despite good rains here ~70-100mm a week or so
    there are fires nearby and it is extremey dry for forest of this type.
