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.
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.
Featuring beautiful images of the Birding Frontiers logo: The Marsh Hawk
Full page colour like these Pied-billed Grebes
Love this female Green-winged Teal with Garganeyish face pattern- spot on 🙂
Is this a southern Black Guillemots or Mandt’s? (see Challenge series: WINTER!)
Lots of pretty little black and white vignettes with the text like next to these Bobolink
Ivory-billed Woodpecker for people like Martin Collinson
and finally I think my friends in Arctic Norway will like this one:
Did I say it clearly enough? You are a blessing Filey… dudes. Thank you very much.
