Hello from wintery Finland,

Another work trip brings our company back to Oz this weekend for a week and
a half. It will be a welcome change to travel from the cold Finland (-12
Centigrade) to the Summer of Australia (+40 Centigrade?).

Unfortunately I am unable to participate on this trip, but my colleaque
Markku will be there and is yet again eager to do some birding in the area
(although Markku prefers to do bird photography rather than just birding).
Sydney is out of the question on his way there (connecting flight leaves
too soon), and the returning flights are still a mystery. But it is certain
that he will have some spare time in Parkes. Unfortunately, due to some
mistake, he does not have a car for travelling at the moment (this might
change - I'll keep you posted), so his birding is limited in and around
Parkes. If you have any tips for him, I would be thrilled to pass the
information along. His English isn't as fluent as mine, so I'll be his

Markku will have at least the following days free: Saturday 1st
(afternoon), Sunday 2nd (whole day) and probably from Saturday 8th to
Sunday 9th (whole day) of December.

Just to let you know that I have already tried to find some information
from Eremaea, but the information for just Parkes is very limited. If he
managed to get a rental car, he'd be able to travel more freely in a  ~200
km radius, which would improve his possibilities greatly. But as I said,
I'll keep you posted if that plays out well.
