Hi all,

This came across my desk yesterday; if anyone can help, please contact Blayne a.s.a.p:


Hello Mr. Gosbell,

My name is Blayne Petrowicz and I currently work for Warringah Council in
Sydney's Northern Beaches as an Environmental Education Officer. I am
currently working on an education booklet that will be distributed to
schools with in the Manly Dam catchment area as a teaching resource. This
resource is being given to the schools for free to help inform both the
teachers and thus the students about the importance of the water that is in
the Dam and the flora and fauna that exists there.

The reason I am writing is because I have been searching in vain for photos
of birds nests to include the booklet and have been unsuccessful thus far in
finding appropriate pictures. I realize this may be a long shot of a request
but I am wondering if you have any of the following birds nesting pictures,
(if you know of anyone that might please pass this on):

One photo of either a : Red Wattlebird, Friarbird, Magpie Lark, Grallina
Cyanoleuca, Figbird - Just the nest please no birds in it.
One photo of: Darter Stick Nest - Anhinga melanogaster
One photo of: Tree Hollow Nest - Laughing Kookaburra
One photo of: Aquatic Platform Nest - Dusky Moorhen
One photo of: Scrape Nest - Masked Lapwing
One photo of: Mud Nest - Welcome Swallow

I am in need of the photos as soon as possible. And I will of course
acknowledge all of the photographers names or companies in the kit as per
use  of the photo.

Thank you for taking the time to help,


Blayne Petrowicz
