Stirring Up A Nest

I read yesterday that the BTO are currently drawing up plans for a new nest finding book to be co-authored by James Ferguson Lees who co-authored the original 'A Field Guide to Bird's Nests'. The book is apparently to be aimed specifically at those engaged in the BTO Nest Record Scheme and presumably (presumption by me) to encourage others to get involved.
The plan is already proving controversial with views split down the middle reagrding whether this is actually a good idea or whether it is madness.
The BTO will know doubt be aware of that the plan would provoke an outcry in some quarters and have a short survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/QB2FDL6 where birders, ringers, stringers and nest recorders can respond to a few questions about the project.
Feel free to comment here too.
