Mauro - I have passed on your very interesting observation to the HANZAB
Section Editor for Food, Khalid Al-Dabbagh, as it appears that it has not
been recorded before.  Any other details, such as the species of tadpole, as
well as how they were being caught, would be welcome.  I feel that such
sightings should probably be published - and this does reopen the question
of how one cites birding-aus messages.  We are going to have to accept that
electronic citation will become increasingly common.  Anyway - the main
point that I would like to pass on is that people are seeing things all the
time that have never been formally recorded - so please do not assume that
they are - and please, please let us all know about them.

Thanks,  Hugo.
