Dear Birdingaussers,
A slip of the pen: Fork-tail = Black Kite. Fork-tailed Kite was the
common name before the 1970s and still the folk-name for the bird. Funny
how scientists shouldn't be let near common names: or committees. Please
don't start me on that one.

Best wishes

Glen Ingram

P.S. If you haven't received a reply from me, I lost much mail when the
last server died.

strangled" Sir Barnett Cocks.
