Sorry for being so late to say thank you for your most wonderful
wishes for my birthday last week. It's been a very busy week and
I just didn't get much time to log on.

Thank you so much for your wishes

anne-marie, Matthys, grannyb, PJL, vinkie (love the Bruce cake!)
chirinda, Tom and MRO (Also a warm welcome back!!!)

And I'm so chuffed that Mr. Handsome made an appearance
on my special day. :shock: :lol: Thanks for saving the cam shots, Mel and JJ! :k

Now I'm already off again for the next 10 days. :redface:
I'm going to Scotland with my best friend. :dance:

Have a great time and lots of wonderful sightings at the cams! :thumbs_up:

Thanks for the congrats Melrockson, Melph68 and Matthys for that sighting at Open last night... thought better to post here than to create extra work for the mods.

Not sure whether it was a honey badger or Ringo, we never really got a good view. Shame that Orpen is down at the moment :?
