Thread subject: Question for Tiger
Name Date Message
karen 03/25/05 03:56 pm I have been reading the Rutland Diaries with great enjoyment ... what is the "bottle bank"?
Tiger 03/25/05 04:17 pm Errr............

Not sure what you mean.

Could you give me a reference??

Tiger 03/25/05 04:21 pm Ah gotcha now.

It it the Loch Garten diaries you are reading not Rutland. :)

The bottle bank is a reference to how much alcohol the watchers had drunk during the night.

In the morning they take the empty bottles to the bottle bank. Bottle banks are places where you collect empty bottles for recycling!!
karen 03/25/05 04:47 pm Thanks for the clarifacation on both points ... I thought the birds were going to the bottle bank! Great Reading BTW!
Tiger 03/25/05 04:50 pm Oh the authors of that diary are very good indeed. They make it sound so interesting.

There was high interest today to see if the female (EJ) returned as she did this day last year. At time of writing she has not been spotted to my knowledge.

There does seem to be a lot of ospreys returning to Britain just now. They do seem to be early this year.
