Hi everyone,

The only time I ever had a break-in into a vehicle was at Buffalo Creek car
park (next to Lee Point) in 1995. It happened while I was on charter with an
overseas group, and even some passports were stolen.

When we went to the Police Station in Darwin to report it all, all they said
was: “oh well, it happens there all the time”. Gee, thanks for the warning!
And it sure looks like nothing has changed in 18 years! Well done, police in

            Happy Birding for the Chestnut Rail or any Gull,
