Thanks for the extensive list Ferdelance.
I really need to get my list in order by the end of the month.

Thanks for the heads up.

Wow, it couldn't be further from the truth for me. I think you're doing a sterling job. In fact, I feel bad because I don't update my list as religiously as I should (haven't gone through new ticks from last week's bird club outing yet).

Hey there! :) Was it your first club outing? (I remember there was a chap Trevor who was introduced as a new(ish) member).

Nice, well done! Yeah, big pity about the mozzies. Fortunately all my bites have disappeared!

That would be cool :) Have you already planned which outings you're going on? (I haven't looked at the calendar for June/July properly).

I also discovered at the Tswaing meeting that the leader is a lurker on the forums (she recognised my handle from my email address).
