Catching up from the front

Just popping in here to see what's been going on after a subtle nudge from everybody's favourite bent football official. I see The Proclaimers are adding splendid patch ticks like dotterel to their 2017 tally.

Well done the lads!

Nothing quite so grand at The Mall... natch, but a barn owl as I staggered back from the pub a few weeks back, plus some utterly inane forgettable gank before that (can't for the life of me recall what it was... but it's down on the spreadsheet, which is what counts) means that after crunching the numbers puts me on 93.10%

Patch tick-a-roo!

Following  a tip of from the fleet footed Lachan (he has no pseudonym), we nipped up onto our patch earlier today to see a fine dotterel. Patch tick! Just a shame I didn't find it, rather than being beaten to it by some bloke out for a run. But its on the last - I'll update the score once I work out what it all means.

two greenshank on the not so great pool this afternoon.

one more to the tally puts me ahead of Seppy... which is what counts.

Big Royzah goes seawatching

Indeed and he did. And so did I. and we did all right too, considering. And we certainly did all right for gin. and large shearwaters. And we even jammed a wilson's petrel, courtesy of Old Spoons and his incredible watery-but-all-seeing eye. Which was nice.

Seppy, Royzah, Old Spoons & Basil post-wilson's sunshine
Best of all, I added heaps of year ticks to my tally for this year - huzzah!
