Sorry Philip but what a silly point to make!
As someone that has left something camera related (unknowingly) at a 
beach/birding site, I was incredibly thankful that a fellow birding-aus member 
found it, took it home and sent an email to this list.
I now have it back and it saved my hundreds of dollars!
Birding/Photography are so intertwined these days that i don't think it is a 
big assumption at all.
Even if it is - surely its better to use whatever methods possible to try to 
alert the owner??

Paul it's not mine but i thank you for posting this on this forum. A decision 
that should be applauded not questioned!
