"Working" weekend

Posted Wednesday 21st August 2013 at 05:30 by dancho_hristov
This weekend I meant to work but I didn't. I wanted to just go somewhere and have a relaxed weekend in front of the computer. Well see the photos and guess if I did it :)

There was no internet, or at least no proper one. I meant to select the hotel on the basis of the internet connection and I thought I had but... no. The internet connection was total crap.

Appreciate the unexpected

Posted Monday 19th August 2013 at 18:28 by Green Sandpiper

Holiday time in Cornwall

Posted Monday 5th August 2013 at 23:27 by Green Sandpiper
It was great to be away, but now that I've had a day at work and it seems like I've never been away at all, I've got the chance to report on the birding opportunities I had whilst away.

Firstly, the caveats. This was a family holiday, so any birding was of the accidental/ surreptitious variety. in saying that, its Cornwall, its the seaside, and its summer, so it was hardly a weekend shoe- shopping at Braehead.
