Thanks for your reply concerning the B-h Gull. I am going to be doing some bird survey work in Regents Park this year for the BTO looking at Parakeets and their effect (if any) on native cavity-nesting species (nuthatches, 'peckers, etc). Are you around either Mon or Tuesday this coming week to meet up for a brief chat? Sorry to post this on here, but don't have a direct e-mail for you. Please e-mail me. Cheers, Bill Haines
