Hi Folks

I. I am not a facebook user and I find this list immensely helpful and
informative. Whenever I have need advise I have got it, and its been
informed and detailed.  I am very grateful to Russell and any others who
have kept it in being.

2. Obviously, there have been the odd thread (perhaps even this one) that
have gone on beyond their best-before date. But the subject line usually
gives those away, and one can just delete them.

3. Equally obviously, there are a few "trigger issues" (bird banding + a
couple of others) which arose passions and hence traffic with an
unfavourable signal to noise ratio. I am astounded that (eg) posting trip
reports has generating flaming responses, and am very sorry to learn that.
Nothing remotely like that has even happened to me (even when I defended my
cat ownership - a potential trigger issue). Some disagreement sure, but
nothing at all lacking in respect.

So armed with my trusty delete button, I say "long live birding-aus", and
thanks for the advice, expertise and good will I have experienced (and the
blogs with the fantastic photos: keep posting those links), and I'll just
edit into electronic oblivion anything else.
