Sounds like good stuff.
As long as everyone is educated on how endagered this species is though.

Would you mind tell us how you find that out?

Had a look at the codes, and I don't see any problems with the page.

Yea, I'd like to know also. It seems unusual that a page for a charity to save a bird species would be using spyware or anything.

Also curious what "all sorts of crap" refers to?

The websites fine. But a popup came up advertising a betting agent so i closed it, low and behold theres spyware all over my desktop, windows registry and favourites list advertising online gambling/dating/cars etc.

I didn't get a pop-up or anything. I guess my norton firewall blocked it.
