Dear Birding-ausers

I have for some time been trying to locate cisticola nests 
being built, for the BBC, which is keen to film nest 
construction.  I can find completed nests, but, because of the 
secretive nature of females of this species, have not been able 
to find nests before completion.  

 If any readers happen to find a cisticola nest in construction 
(I may already be too late this season), could you please let 
me know ASAP.  I am particularly interested in nests in 
southern Victoria, but the Sydney area would also be suitable. 

Since nest building is only likely to take a few days, I will 
give my home phone number to enable rapid contact, if anybody 
is able to assist.

Home Number 03 9846 1173.

Many thanks in anticipation
