A little bit of fame

From Scilly Now & Then - shame they got the URL wrong. Click to enlarge
A little while ago, Scilly Now & Then magazine contacted me asking for comments on my experiences on the Isles of Scilly. I got the impression they were after a couple of little snippets but gave them a couple of paragraphs to select material from; it seems I got a few column inches in the end!

As for my day today - it was annoying. Making my way out of Circle Field slowly towards the Watchpoint I saw an interesting looking flock of birds - quick! Scope on them. Golly they look like Golden Plovers - about twenty of them! I try to juggle counting them and getting a final ID on them in two or three seconds before they fly behind Canons Wood. Bloody hell.
