Thanks Starainboy :t: Nice to know not everyone thinks I'm a sentimental old moo ;) :-O

Had a lovely day out today. Gorgeous weather and revisiting a few sites that I used to virtually live at in the 80's when I first started birding properly. It's amazing just how many changes there have been :eek!: Sadly the Wallsend Swallow Pond is nothing but a glorified park nowadays and despite there being a notice saying it's a nature reserve and could dog owners please keep their dogs on the lead (for the whole 200yds it takes to pass through it!) NOBODY took any notice of it!!! :C Perhaps folks are just too stupid, selfish and ignorant to read these days

Don't get me started on dogs, etc! Anyway, I'm up to 166 with my latest being a hobby at RSPB Pulborough down in Sussex.
