While I keep trip lists, a house list and an Australian list I do not visit the 
last one often. However urged on by enquiries from friends who frequent birding 
aus I have reviewed my Australian list thoroughly for the first time in about 
five years and find that I have surpassed the 700 mark, 708 in fact. While I am 
really not sure which was my 700th bird I’m going to claim the Grey-backed 
Storm Petrel on the Eaglehawk pelagic as this is as close as I can go by my 
memory of the order of their appearance.

When I arrived home I needed to get out and about to see what was happening and 
spent two hours in the morning and three in the late afternoon searching in the 
rainforests around the central and south-western Atherton Tablelands. Inspired 
by having seen and heard so many birds I listed what I could remember and came 
up with a neat 120 species. Considering that over an hour of this time was 
spent in a bird poor environment and conditions searching for further Golden 
Bowerbird bowers I was very happy to have such a list. 

Thus, I have come here to blow my own trumpet and don’t need to be told that 
that is what I am doing.

Many thanks to all my birding friends who share the fun of this activity; May 
the birds continue to surprise and delight you, Alan
