A few days ago, I entered your webpage archives seeking information about
Hooded Plover.  I bookmarked the pages for future use, then exited the

Since then, maybe to prove it has a mind of its own, the email system in
its wisdom is now sending us large numbers of emails that were addressed to
you, but have come to us instead.  Goodness only knows how!

I'm a keen birder, but I can't imagine how the system can have decided I'm
now the Birds Australia centre.  Ah well, computers do funny things

sometimes go missing - maybe this sort of thing has happened before.

Anyway, I'll now try forwarding them on to you - it'll be obvious which
emails are forwarded.  I'll also contact our server for advice.

Can you please get back to me to let me know u've received this and the
following approximately 50 forwarded emails?

Yours in birding
