Holiday notice.

Hi folks. I'm off for a birding trip to the Scilly Isles which is a small group of islands about 30 miles off the south west of England. I leave at 2am Friday morning so that I can catch my helicopter flight which leaves at 7.30am! I hope to take some photos for blogging of course! I'll be back the following Sunday, so just over a week out of touch with you all! The photo above is of a Little Egret taken the other day while on the Somerset Levels. shame about the blade of grass! (-:

Jenny,

Off to the Scillies for the October birding fest...good luck and good birding. I am going to miss it this year. Love the photo of the Little Egret, the reflection in the water of it's crooked bill is rather good.

Have a good one...not that I am jealous of course ;-)

Hi Christine, many thanks! (-:

Hi John, I'm glad I will be there a week before all the 'hoards'! It's nicer not to get crowded out by all those big burly birders! (-;

Hi Chris, I do hope to get some nice photos for some blog posts! We shall see!

Hi Julie, many thanks!


Hi Evie, if it's not too dark when I get there, I will be sure to take a piccy of the copter!

Hi Roy, many thanks!

Ohh Jenny. Now you should know the locals hate being called the Scilly Isles....it's either the Scillies or the isles of Scilly. I hope there are no locals reading your blog...they'll be scarring the rarities away!! LOL!! Seriously though, have a great time, I am soooo jealous!!
