I'm still occupied with administering business things - but anyone who's waiting for files, news, replies to comments etc. from me can now rest easy :) Finally, I'll return to "real work" on Wednesday, this week.

I forgot to mention, that many of my birdish critters are quite inspired by Austrian-Bavarian mythical creatures like the "Raurackl", "Rasselbock" or "Wolpertinger" (a horned rabbit of sorts) or the "Basilisk beast"...
