What the fuck is going on these days? A pager message today read as follows: Essex Southern Migrant Hawker till 12.15 Hadleigh Castle Ctry Park when taken by a collector claiming it was ‘for the British Museum.’ I doubt that the British Museum would do something so reckless… please someone from the BM please deny you collected it.
It really beggars belief that someone would still do this today. It’s not as though the ID was in any doubt. I think, I’d have be hard pressed not to push the cunt into the water… accidentally of course, ‘for the good of society.’
On a slightly different note I managed to get to see the Common Hawkers at New Lount. They are now firmly on my County list. I was pretty sure I had a male a few years ago but couldn’t get it settled to clinch the ID.
