Quote of the day: "When you want to go to the ice-cream-van, ALWAYS take mummy with you..." yeeeeeeees! Dopey mammals!
No... what I'm talking about is the three (count 'em) tufted ducks larking about on the lake this afternoon. The coot is back too: another score. Add pheasant, reed bunting and black headed gull and that's five year ticks during a one hour spin on the bike after lunch. Not bad going at all at all!
All of which joyful japes puts me on a resounding 58.84% for the year -- catapulting me into first place. Yay!
