Not only would I not be ashamed about carrying a field guide around (I'm one
who carries a backpack - sorry Tony - with Pizzey & Knight, notebook, spare
biro, thermos, gloves, lunch and, most importantly, Tim Tams), I also
wouldn't be ashamed to admit to problems with Thornbills - tiny little
things, never stopping so you can look at them, usually high in a tree or
hiding behind a leaf.  Grr!

My take on the feild guides thing is that it's just another aspect of
English classism.  Like in Chariots of Fire.  What me?  Practice?  Never!
