Lots of list members seem to be inspired by Harvey Perkins' great
'Where Am I?" quiz. It's the sort of thing that could generate a lot
of mail quickly! What I've suggested to Harvey is that we can run
these on the birding-aus website (and thus avoid cluttering the
mailing list too much). I've already put up a temporary page and
linked it to an online 'guestbook' where anyone can record their
guesses. If all goes well in the next hour or so I should have the
following in place:
* A page on the birding-aus site for the "Where Am I?" quiz. I think
we should limit it to one (or possibly two) every few days - probably
settling down to about 1 every week. Responses would be wiped every
time we update the quiz.
* An archive of "Where Am I" birdlists with the answer and successful
guesses (it might be interesting to store ALL the guesses but I think
the Internet is quite big enough as it is).
* "Where's Lawrie"? Quiz number 2, submitted by Lawrie Conole.
If anyone has any problems with all this (esp. Lawrie and Harvey who
actually 'own' the first 2 quiz lists, and Harvey the idea) please
get in touch.
Can I ask that you send your lists to me (not to the mailing list)
and I'll put them on the website in turn?
Here's the address by the way:

link called "NewStuff" (I'll do a new button pointing to the quiz
