No I've let it drop for a bit. I had a computer crash which means I have to cut and paste the whole post and put it back into the mind-map i generated it it in order to have a fighting change of editing it successfully. One day I'll feel compelled to do it, but its about 25 pages of code!

ok.. the map is reconstructed and I've even added in a few of the more interesting recent threads. It will take eons to track back to April 2004 to catch all the best threads, but I will. Evenually. In the mean time, if people know of any particuarly useful ones, please let me know and I'll add them.

THis seems a great idea - but it only allows for one thread per species? I think someone should just write a module to automate this task.

Automation would be nice. There are many links per species.

eagle

Hi Jane,

There was a short thread on Beaudouin's Snake Eagle (I think thread 30878) with a very nice photo and some ID tips. You might want to include it in your Index (which is great by the way!).

I couldn't find it by searching Forums for "Beaudouin's" but if you put in "Eagle" and "Gambia" it should come up!

Cheers,

Saddinall

I've just updated the index again. If I've missed any threads where people have taken time to explain ID's, especially tricky ones, or I've missed any unusual/new species (these will mostly be SE Asian and African species) let me know. If the latter also give me a clue in which section to put it!

Jane Hi.
Although I never saw the 'Chinatown' warbler, would I be right in assuming that it's jizz on occasion as it moved through the canopy was more Phyllosc like as opposed to the forward thrusting of say Reed Warbler?. I've already examined one of the early best right to left facing images in the birch tree and I'm fairly certain that I have an ID. Have had a lot of experience looking up into the canopy at bland looking Hippos/Acros within the urban setting. It Would be a lot more expedient for me to qualify my reasons by telephone as opposed to the ebb and flow of forums.

Regards Ken
