I sympathize with Martin, somewhat.  These days its probably best to keep our photos/video/audio elsewhere in places such as Flickr/Vimeo/soundclould etc etc.and provide links....  That way we do not eat into folks data allowance, other than for a minimal text email.  They can make the choice if they want to look by using the link, then or later

Folk can also help ones self by having a few email addresses for different purposes so the birdlist one does not clutter up your main one.  Extra email address are free these days from the likes of Gmail and most ISPs will let you have several at no cost.  Mind you, if ones ISP/phone contract is bad with regards to data its time to strong-arm your provider.  From experience they never tell you the latest deals, unless you ask.

Please keep the limit at 200Kb.  Apart from anything else I access my internet account through a phone account when I am away from home and it has a really low download limit so taking other people's hobbies through that costs me money!!!  

To my mind we already get good photos - in terms of showing interesting things about birds - sent round.  If someone wants to circulate something that will print out at wall size I suggest join a photography club.

If you click on this link you can hear the call of the Autumn Peeper, you will know it, they are common, I just want to popularise the name.

This was recorded on my phone at 8pm last night literally outside our front door.

BTW I find it ridiculous I can't send a 350kb attachment with this message, are there really people it would inconvenience. Perhaps it's time for them to upgrade something, are set up an email filter to not see messages with attachment (easily done). Even if we could send 500kb attachments we could have some good photos sent around.
