Hi all,
In my opinion, B-A is an appropriate place to advertise as there are many, many 
enquiries from birders overseas on this list. I'd be happy to contribute to the 
cost of running b-a, and have in fact offered Russell such in the past, if I am 
to place ads on b-a.

In fact, I didn't even know of the existence of ausbird, until I read this 



Yours in all things "green"

I completely agree Fiona - and I do some guiding as well. This to me is not
the right forum for this.
