Hi all,
I forwarded this thread to a friend who is an Agricultural Scientist specialising in fibre animals, especially goats. He is also a serious bird watcher and conservationist. I have just returned from a few days visit with he and his family to their 'Land for Wildlife' property in western/central Victoria where we were thrilled to find Diamond Firetails with young, latest new record for the property's extensive bird list which also includes WT Eagles.

"Thanks Wendy,
Yes I know Ron Harris very well.
It is not so easy as the wits pretend. Goats graze 9 hours each day and are
clearly outside in the open. A guard dog may be the way......."
