Tuesday 23rd and Wednesday 24th August.   Leave a comment

Tuesday morning was very wet and I took the opportunity to catch up with a lot of paperwork. In particular I made a start on my West Papua write up, something that has been put on the back burner with all the ringing and blogging that I do these days. I made sure my pre New Guinea fitness regime wasn’t wholly abandoned with a trip to the gym.

In the evening Margaret and I were invited round to our young friend Christine’s house where she and her friend Malcolm treated us to a meal. Malcolm is the author of numerous specialised books on old aircraft and has a very busy life travelling between international aeronautical and publishing conventions.

Kevin ringing a Kingfisher

During the post juvenile moult the greenish greater coverts of this Blue Tit were replaced by blue feathers, the greenish primary coverts are not moulted until next summer.

Its not all doom and gloom, some species such as the Little Egret are much commoner than thirty years ago……

…as this photo proves.
