Dear All,

Latham's Snipe is front page news in today's Wyong-Tuggerah Express Advocate ( Central Coast, NSW). There is a campaign in the area to halt a proposed Longwall coal mine in the Wyong hinterland. The anti- mine campaigners claim that the mine works could interfere with the drainage of the tributaries of the Wyong River and cause reduction of habitat for Latham's Snipe. I haven't seen the species in the area myself, perhaps Alan Morris could comment on this. Unfortunately the Express Advocate is not on-line, but if anyone is interested, I would be happy to get a copy of the article to them.
