this is not exactly news, I thought I would draw birder's attention
to the 3 bird badges/brooches/pins that the Oriental Bird Club sell
to raise funds for bird conservation in Asia.
There are three
designs available: White-crowned Forktail (the symbol of the OBC),
Gurney's Pitta and Rhinoceros Hornbill - all species found in Thailand.
The badges are made from metal and enamel, they cost £2 each
(or £1 with other purchases) and are available from the OBC
website's sales page.
