... and they did and I got more happiness from seeing these two birds than virtually everything else, avian, I've seen this year.
Because a) it was on the patch; b) it was a patch tick and they are going to become increasingly rare; c) it was a major grip back - these birds not so regular as you would think; d) it was one for the team; and e) five minutes earlier I had escorted Mr Lethbridge off the premises, again, with the all usual consequences, again!.
If it works why change it?
Of course he was happy for me!
