He’ll be baaaaack to see ewe you soon…

First, click here, for some suitable background music.

Take one bird photographer.


Place on remote chain of islands.


Add strong non-migrant-friendly winds, subtract any birds of note.

Observe many more farmyard animals than birds.


Cue amusing conversation.

JL: “Hang on guys, stop! Wait!”

DB: “Eh?” [assume rare bird has just appeared]

JL: “That’s a really attractive sheep.”


DB: “WTF?”

JL: “No, really… it’s cute.” [motor drive fires] “I wonder if it will let me stroke it?” [not sure if the word was actually “stroke” – it was very windy, so I may have misheard.]

Apparently not: access denied.

(By the way, we haven’t seen much today – three Yellow-brows in Kergord, Slav on some random voe, a single Knot, 8 Whooper Swan, that sort of thing).

But Jono continues to have a distant, wistful look in his eye…
