excellent pages

There has been a lot of good work put into Opus so if you come across something especially good, put it in here. I don't think that we need to limit this to bird pages, the location part of Opus has the chance of being a special resource as we have discussed elsewhere, and drawing the attention to good pages in that section might also be good.

Well here are a couple of pages:
http://www.birdforum.net/opus/Channel-billed_Toucan
http://www.birdforum.net/opus/Whimbrel

I'll try to stay positive this time...

Let's try these for starters:

Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve

Pagham Harbour

Doi Inthanon National Park

Some good choices there JT

Pagham needs a bit of tidying up (I'll be in the Ps soon LOL) and I should be able to find some more pictures to add, (I've spent a lot of time there). Links for a few of the Bash threads could go in too.

I wonder if anyone has more pictures of Doi Inthanon?

Alan I agree! Two other pages: http://www.birdforum.net/opus/Mallee_Ringneck and http://www.birdforum.net/opus/Port_Lincoln_Ringneck are both pretty good.

Should this thread be transferred to the open Opus Discussion area?

Malabar Pied Hornbill is looking good with its new map.

I agree that this thread can move to to general forum.

I think the page for Bempton Cliffs and Bamborough Head looks great.

It shows a really dramatic picture of the cliffs, unfortunately I don't know who took it to give them the credit.... anyone?
