Birding-Aus Digest, Vol 80, Issue 19

I have a suggestion of what to do with all your bird magazines, especially current ones. I take mine, that on those rare occasions when I go to the doctor, accountant, palm-reader, etc., and leave them in the waiting rooms for other bored people to read. My guess it may gather some interest from people waiting; might spark a little interest in conservation and even gather some new members, donations etc. and now they don’t pile up in the house.

My Dad was a rare breed in the Field Naturalists in being both an excellent birdo and an extraordinary amateur botanist. I doubt there was anyone who could rival his knowledge of the identification and distribution of the plants of northwestern Victoria.

I also I have a complete set of Bird Observer magazines going back to 1970, plus all the RAOU newsletters / Wingspan and Australian Birdlife since 1978, plus complete set of Emu 1969 to 2009, all the Australian Bird Watcher / Aust Field Ornithology. Plus Canberra Bird Notes and COG newsletters 1970 to present, Several years of Sunbird, Australian Aviculture, Birds of the world magazines, etc??.. All or nearly all in very good condition. That is a bit over three metres of book shelf space, plus about 3 archive boxes.

> Grey Teal (Anas gracilis) (12) There were a couple of waterholes in Barrananna Gorge at most 30 metres by 10 metres. I think I have seen waterholes there before, though many years ago, so maybe they are permanent. Apart from a single heavy downpour in February there has been almost no rain for several years. Dead trees away from the creek lines and dead roos everywhere were abundant.
> Cruising in one of the waterholes was a large family of grey teal, mum, dad and 10 ducklings. I am sure the ducklings were too small to have flown in, so likely they had hatched in the gorge. It was a delightful and very unexpected sight
