Thanks Mike, 
Great, I had overlooked the submission on the BARC web page. First level is 
good as far as I am concerned. I'm not ussualy very fast either, I must admit

It has been submitted and accepted by BARC (Case 656) which is at least the 
first level of proper documentation. That was in almost record time! Far faster 
than I've ever achieved but I'm notoriously slow! If you mean the second level, 
which is publication in a printed journal such as Australian Field Ornithology, 
which, as a first for Australia I agree should be done, then I have no idea but 
we should give those responsible for the report adequate time to do this. I did 
advise the authors of the BARC submission re the desirability of so doing. 
Unfortunately, I doubt they subscribe to this group so your message will not 
act a spur. Moreover, if I was responsible, it could take me ten (10) or more 
years to achieve that but then again, I am inefficient. Publication of the 
first Island Monarch in 2004 (together with the subsequent eleven) is imminent 
and was only achieved by the imposition of urgent threats!
