What people are saying:

I’ve got quite a bit of work from the Burwood Bulletin over the years and I think I’ve had my little ad running for about 15 years and had lots of jobs and met some lovely people. My main motivation is to give the BB some extra much needed income to help save this great newsletter/magazine.
Regards, Martyn

Dear Editor, My wife and I have been subscribers to the Burwood Bulletin for many years and read every issue from front to back cover. On another hobby, we also support the ‘Sherbrooke Lyrebird Study Group’ (SLSG) in the Dandenongs. Therefore I sent the SLGS a link to your excellent article about Tom Tregellas.

As you see below, the secretary of the group expressed her appreciation for your efforts and placed a link on the SLGS Facebook site. Please note that the number 1000+ is the number of likes of the Facebook page, not our membership. The Lyrebird group is very small, but a number of times each year we get about 40+ people on our very early dawn surveys.

If you would like to learn even more about Tom Tregellas, there is a book (87 pages A4) about Tom Tregellas written by Esther Hardware, published by the Bird Observers Club of Australia in 2005. Among other items, this includes a list of 40 articles by him in the Box Hill Reporter. Much more detail than you will ever need, but parts of it may be of interest to you. Esther was well known in the SLSG and died in 2009, aged 92.
