Not much birding done today, as I have been busy doing other jobs. This morning was taken up for most of the time finalising plans for the visit to the British Bird Fair at Rutland Water, only 43 days to go, starting on Friday 17th August for 3 days. Accommodation all finalised, spoken with Calmac regarding ferry tickets, only got to finalise some details with Mark at Islay Studios about the layout for our posters. All the whisky and gin are to hand, so think the job is almost done and dusted, great. By the looks of things we are in the same Marquee as last year and with the same exhibitors round about us, so if you are at the Bird fair, look us up, Marquee 1 stand 14 and enjoy some hospitality from Islay and enter our free holiday draw for a cottage for 4 to come and see our geese. This afternoon, as it was dry, was taken up with cutting the grass and later on clipping some sheep, only the few that refused to come in to the shed are left to be shorn, if only they had come in the job would be done..... sheep can be really stupid at times!!!
