11th November: No birds

An afternoon visit to RVCP produced no birds of any real interest. There were no Long-eared Owls in their usual roost and the only highlight on the Reserve was three Goosanders - whoopee! With this in mind I decided to spend an hour or two torturing myself in the gym.

Highlight of the day was being invited down to Leicester for the first gathering of the Drunk Birders since Shetland. This will take place on the 1st December involving beer, curry and possibly high quality Melton Mowbray Pork Pie. I fully expect the Bog Ostrich to make a reappearance

Looking forward to the night out Mark. Sadly though, seeing as Rob 'Bishop & Wolf' Fray will not be attending then the Bog Ostrich is not a certainty - but I'll do my best.

Funnily enough I do own a mop cap, perhaps I will wear it when I next bake you a pie?

Are we talking about Rob's attempts at 'chumming' in the Bishop? If so don't forget his even more pathetic attempts to clean up after himself... 'it was the shark, honest'

The reference to the Bog Ostrich was for myself, after I spent 2 hours in an alcohol induced coma with my head down Helen's bog!
