Thank you Filey Bird Observatory

Them there lovely folks!

In the slightly odd world I live in and sometimes interface between different realities…  I was having a blood transfusion t’other day ready for a next treatment. Takes about 3 hours. As I had been difficult to pin down, representation was sent from Filey Bird Obs and associated friends to deliver a gift. Quite why is till a little beyond me. However the gift was very gratefully received amidst a teary- eyed blubber of thankfulness.

Really you guys messed up my mascara and everything. It is such a blessing. Only one problem…Audubon 10 (1 of 1)

The gift is huge. It’s a book and is far and away the biggest book I have ever owned. It’s really a display book, so it’s is currently on display. Each day I can flick through the pages and let them settle on a favourite.

So Filey and friends- THANK YOU!! I love it. It is stunning. Thought I would share a bit with you:

Here it is next to my parabolic reflector on a rather large dining room table.
