     Firstly, my email access is getting increasingly dodgy.  I have been
     off-line since 5th December.  You may not have received an update since
     then - despite me trying.  My company's computer is suffering from severe
     overload.  If anyone has tried to email me since 5th, please resend.

     The 2 Oriental Praticoles at Pittown Lagoon, Windsor are still present
     - on the north west edge in long grass near a casuarina tree.  You
     have to wade through water.
