Hi Marie (and B-A in general),

 Regarding Birding-Aus members donating bins, I wonder if it'd be an idea to 
get some donations together and buy a job lot of cheaper bins. I got a few 
pairs for 15 pounds each from an online shop in UK which have done me very well 
and are quite tough. However, beforehand, I'd contact the Sri Lankan embassy to 
make sure that the bins aren't going to be confiscated. Another possibility 
would be that using pooled monetary donations, it might be possible to bargain 
with a supplier for a better price for a larger number of pairs. It may also be 
worth writing a trip report about birding with with the locals for a magazine 
such as wingspan - if the suppier of the bins is told in advance, they might 
even chuck a few pairs extra in if there's going to be good publicity.
