  1. Good set of sightings for the area Jason.

  2. They are Alan. I just wish I could have been out and about a bit more to catch up with a few of these bits and bobs...but hey theres always the next tim ;-)

  3. Small comfort I know but at least you are still able to keep in touch with what is happening on your patch, Jason and for what it's worth I think you have your priorities exactly right at the moment.

  4. Thanks Jan..I know i'm doing the right thing by the old chap. I did manage a very productive hour around the patch on to follow!
