Good evening bloggers and here is the news.
Photo from here.
I am sad to report that the superb 'Birdman of Bognor' event that was to be held in Worthing today was cancelled.
Doomed from the start it seems. First off, someone broke the pier at Bognor causing this spectacularly British event to be moved to neighbouring Worthing.
Then the fabulous British summer weather took it's toll.
After the rescue boats capsized three times the powers that be called a halt to the 2008 event. (Huh - softies!!!).
Some nutters still ventured out in the atrocious inclement conditions.
That'd be us then...
Good job we were able to enjoy good food, good chat and fine company with our dear friends! We've asked them to make sure the weather is booked well in advance for the 2009 event!
In other news, the blackbirds in Moogsvile were rewarded for all their hard work this week when one (is that all???) healthy, fluffsome chick fledged successfully.
There may have been others but they/it flew the nest very early in the morning thus robbing us 'guardians of the nest' of the joy of witnessing the event.
Chicky news - 2 eggs today, thank you for asking :)
Off now to get some sleep in readiness for another week of doings in Moog's house.
