||Thats good news Pam. What a special day this is.
I am sorry I didn't think to let you know I was going to Rutland Water yesterday. I only really decided the day before, just wanted to go and have another look before we go away. I will let you know next time I am going, though I must admit I would be a bit nervous about my lack of knowledge! I know nothing compared to the people who contribute here.
Am glad I didn't bump into Prince Phillip, bet he is glad he missed me too!

||Interesting our British friends are so excited and I learn about it from them on a feathered wing site. Yesterday I learned about a wildfire in Eastern Washington by reading a bird watcher report. I am "out of the loop".

||I do say, that was one huge Osprey that landed.

||Never mind Cathy........we birders are sometimes looked upon as rather STRANGE beings, especially by those that think they know and hear all.
