Popes and penguins
The Falkland Islanders, but not the penguins or albatrosses, have voted to remain a British Overseas Territory.
Does the Pope like penguins, I wonder?
Kentucky bluebirds etc
In two months time this blog will be going on tour in the USA. I’m writing a book (more on this later) and am spending a few weeks this spring travelling and researching for that book. I’ll be passing through Kentucky, Ohio, New York and many other states. I’ll be writing a daily blog on my travels, just like I did a couple of years ago when I brought you tales of waitresses across the USA (see here, here) and the occasional bit of wildlife (see here, here). If you are an American reader of this blog and fancy getting in touch then please do so. I’ll be travelling widely, and I have work to do, but giving the occasional talk to groups of birders and in return being shown some American birds could tempt me to change my journey plan.
Happy St Patrick’s Day!
