mwp - i suggest you forward your pic to birdlife - ideally with time and place of sighting - they will appreciate the info and are usually pleased to identify species for you

thanks Sdravko - it is at least a consolation for me that very small plants give a hard time to experts llike you as well - with me they just give me a headache as the net does not always provide enough material for identification

Lisa
I suggest it is time to invest in a new camera - now they have become cheap and take very decent macro as well - mine packs in 7mp and cost lm149 - pretty cheap when three years back a 4mp model cost around lm270

if you need pics from ras il-wahx drop a line

Invariably I com...

true Pine - I managed correct identification 5 minutes after I got home by just having a look at the beautiful med flora book we both own ( maybe MWP got his stolen too ??? )
