Hi KR,
great seeing all you people at the Birdfair,shame that it rained.Hope nobody did to serious a damage to their bank accounts,do know of someone who treated themselves to a nice new scope and am sure they will get great use out of it.Many great sightings to you :wink:
The meet at the wetlands is a definite for us.Preferred date is Oct 2nd,then Sept 25th,we return from KNP on the 21st Sept but could be persuaded to turn up.Cannot make the 9th Oct as we are staying near Arundel so we can visit the wwt there.
Come on you UK mites lets have more of you there for a great days birdwatching.

Take care wherever you are.

PF and SO.

Hi All
Great meeting you/seeing you again on Saturday.

Hobbit and I can do either the 25th Sept or 2nd Oct at Barnes, but not the 9th Oct as we shall be 'back home' in Marloth/Kruger. :dance:

PF and Carol, have a great time in Kruger - looking forward to hearing all about it when we meet up. BTW Hobbit has done nothing but play with his scope since we got back. Boys and their toys! :roll:

Not sure yet, but we can manage without him.

2nd would be better for me than the 25th but both are doable.

Carol and I are ok for both 2nd and 3rd,we'll go along with the majority.
Obviously 2nd might seem more attractive to those who have a distance
to travel and then have to get up for work on the Monday morning.
Hope to see lots more mites at one of our favourite sights for birdwatching.

Take care wherever you are.

PF and SO.
