Dear ornithologists,
The year 2000 return migration has begun -- the first returners are already 
We are inviting you to experience the return to Europe of nine species (eight of
which breed in Switzerland) 'on.line'.  Please report your first observations 
Redstart, Cuckoo, Swift, Blackcap, Nightingale, Red-backed Shrike, Swallow, and
White Stork, to [address as given].  The European maps will be updated daily.  
more people who join in, the more interesting it will be.

[It is not clear why only 8 species are listed.]
