Yes, I suppose this is an advertisement. But if QOSI are interested,
others might also like it. And it really is good value for money.
The Gould League series Birds of Southeastern Australia is
excellent - 7 vols arranged by habitat - most are now unfortunately
out of print. Search second hand shops.Warning - coloured print
on sized paper - don't get them wet!
