Hi everybody -

Thanks to all those people who came up with ideas in response to my
message.  The article in Wingspan (March issue) will focus more on the
simple and immediate end of the idea range rather than the complicated or
major life-style change end, but the latter type of ideas should be good
for a different kind of feature later on.

Several people mentioned the idea (originally suggested by Ian Temby) of
handout cards promoting birdwatching as being good for business.  We are
definitely taking this one up, and will be producing such cards to provide
(at cost) to anybody wanting a few to hand out.  The cards will also
provide the opportunity for interested businesses to register themselves
with us as being bird or birder friendly, and to be put on a mailing list
for information about relevant bird events or developments.  I very much
hope that this will help do something positive towards what many people
have mentioned on the bird tourism thread - the low profile of birdwatching
in the tourism industry.  An announcement about the cards will be in the
March Wingspan.
