Get Me Out Of Here… I’m A Celebrity

As Tracy Morrow said in 1991 ‘I’m back muddy funster!’

So… Birdfair – that annual institution in British birding has been and gone and what did I think? Hot, hot and sticky and not terribly exciting. There were some really good bits… meeting up with celebrity birder and Radio 3 stalwart Tom McKinney was a real highlight and oh how the crowds flocked to his talk in the events marquee…

Get Me Out Of Here… I’m A Celebrity

Saturday morning and things took an unexpected turn when Dave’s TwatNav took us underwater…


Thankfully Dave’s new car turns into a submarine… he bought it from Network Q or some such dealer.

Once we’d dried off we did our turn on the LROS stand. The good thing about Birdfair is meeting up with members and non-members alike. It’s a bit like Scilly without he birds.

After our stint on the stand we headed off to see Mark Constantine’s excellent talk on his new book Catching The Bug, a review of which will follow soon.
