Thanx David,
It was a lot of fun to make, though Claudia only lasted a couple of hours with us Brewers before electing to 'jump ship'!  But I must point out that artisitic licence was employed in the show with the reference to us 'speeding in a thunder storm', which we certainly didn't do. We run, we yell, we're busy...but we don't speed. Incidentally ,the score update of "178" from Lucas was at 0830 before we hit our you can see why we were confident David!
Also, has anyone heard anything further about the Brolga seen at Morpeth? My money's on it hanging around the Morpeth STW and venturing over to the flats on Phoenix Park etc.


I've just listened to the ABC Radio National story on the NSW twitchathon.  They followed two Hunter Valley based teams, The Hunter Thickheads and the Hunter Home Brewers.

I must congratulate the members of the two teams involved for being great ambassadors for birdwatching (Ann Lindsay did, however, get a little over-excited about a White-backed Swallow).  It was a great listen.  Those that missed it can catch it again this Saturday, 3 December at 5.30 pm.
