If only they would be more inquisitive to watch who and what is coming, so that you could at least take a picture AG! Sounds great anyway! :clap: :clap:

@MarkusF
They are occasionally seen,hope this is the right word to use :) .
In 2011 we have seen them only 10 times for the whole year.
This year we already had 9 sightings of them.

Thanks. I have followed your updates over past few months before I registered and thought that you had some frequent sightings of them. (Hence my question) So from your statistics it has definitely has increased by some margin, which are great! Hope it continue for the rest of the year. :)
