 That was only part of what she wrote. She also wrote "

Yes I think we can use the same birds again - especially if we get stuck on some of those tricky ones.

Elsie - Annie is right, there is a Willie Wagtail already at R. Do you have something else that can substitute?"

which I assumed meant her allowance referred to the K's and Q's or just the tricky ones.cheeky

Haliastur indus or Brahiminy Kite.

Sorry for the confusion guys!

Within the one alphabet we can only use one photo per bird species (so either scientific or common name). I thought it might be too difficult to apply it across the board (so for each alphabet we get through) especially with the difficult ones.

 

So lets say in the new alphabets, the same birds (different photos) can feature as in previous ones, but the species cannot appear twice within the same alphabet. Make sense?

Oh and on an unrelated note. I popped a post in the annoucements thread but I will state it here too as it will go to a lot of you - the BIBY website will be down on Tuesday morning (12th) from about 9am for at least a few hours. We have to move servers.
