I've very recently acquired an old PDA which I'd been thinking about buying for some time. I wanted something that could hold large amounts of text, low res photos and sound.

It's a brilliant way of compiling loads of information and having it all hand in the field, and also for taking out and studying at odd moments of the day. It's very quick and easy to use. Takes about a second to load up and switch between programmes.

At the moment I've got hundreds of photos stored on it, loads of notes in Word and MP3 bird songs. I'l probably end up putting in lots of the content from Iberianature plus my favourite websites. Whereever I am I'll be able to have access to this information.

Has anyone else used a PDA for natural history studies? I thoroughly recommend one. I hear that the latest genereation of snazzy mobiles have similar functions

I keep on finding new uses.

Today for instance, I listened to a playlist of selected easy birds sounds on random as I washed up the dishes.

So next time we out in Collserola Nick you'll be able to distinguish between the calls of the Crested and Coal tits, not to mention the robin and the Pekin robin  :angel:
