Someone needs to invent a photographic book only with male, female, juveniles, chicks, and eggs. Should be quite a small tome! Haha :doh:

I wish TOOO ... not sure about the eggs tho'

perhaps we could encourage sky, wild-T, JVR etc to contribute/allow pictures (sorry I know that there are others, but just punting...). There seems to be a dearth of such books/websites. The book/website could be focussed on funding VHR etc projects... not commercial...

I might even volunteer to produce it (over a couple of years)..... :roll:

Now to look further at the BID.... or my SO will defintely get annoyed
