If you have pictures that you think would look good on these web pages I would be happy to see them and probably publish them here.  Send them as attachments to an e mail to john@havantnature.net.  It helps me if the file name is changed to 'species - your name'.  That way I won't use your picture in future without giving proper credits.  Thanks in anticipation.
