I got back last night from Newhaven and just wanted to thank Josef, Toni,
Peter and Wendy and all the other volunteers for a wonderful time. Newhaven
is looking magnificent and Peter and Toni made sure we got excellent views
of the Princess Parrots. The ones we saw appeared to have paired up and
were checking out tree hollows so hopefully they will nest on the property.
Oh yes, the other mega-highlight was 2 Grey Falcon that circled over the
car and allowed me to get a couple of dodgy clicks in before they drifted
off at high speed toward the horizon. I will put up a full report of our
visit in a day or so.
