Yep its this time of year again. Alrewas Show Day. God knows how many years Ive stood out on the road telling cars where to go (the odd one quite literally!!). This also means no birding today and as I am working tomorrow, litte chance then. However I di have Monday off so I will get to the odd local place plus a new place I have recently been informed about.
Ive learnt to check my pager more often this week. A Franklins Gull was at Chasewater on Thursday night (I think). As I was on call and the weather was a tad variable my pager was left in my bag on silent as I always have it at work in the office. I did not read about it until yesterday morning and there has been no sign since. Must check it more often. Off to the show now for a 12 hour stint. If anyone is going come and say high, I'm the misreable looking one at the road junction.
