Actually Philip, this fairly well hidden area is probably only known to birders 
and the flash was picked up right next to a very popular bird photography spot. 
It is also a spot very well known to local birders that regularly access 
Birding-aus. The reason I didn't mention the locality was to maybe jog ones 
memory . As to someone actually searching there right now, the device had been 
there for a while as it had weathered at least one storm (as evidenced by the 
debris covering it) and we were there for two days with no-one turning up to 
look for it. I can assure you, both Brian and myself made a fairly safe 
assumption. Cheers - Paul.

This kind of message comes up at times. It intrigues me to think that some
of us may think that the only people who would be there and use devices like
this would be bird interested people, as distinct from the vast number of
other possible reasons. And that they would be readers of this list. Of
course it may be and may be fortunate if it is. But the chances of both
being correct are low and in the meantime someone else is probably searching
the place for their Electronic Flash. Did you leave a big note at the
location, so that someone who went searching for it could contact you? 

I think that making this assumption about something being about birds when
it need not be, is a bit like the assumption made recently about likely
mudflat bait takers maybe taking eggs.

Hi All, Brian Russell and myself spent the last few days meandering around
some popular SEQ birding spots and at one particular spot picked up an
expensive current model flash unit off the ground, by the looks of things
just recently left and in working order. Anyone who thinks it's theirs
please contact myself or Brian with the brand/model name and location you
think you left it at. Cheers - Paul W.
