Book worm

The two books that I weaned on
My visit to the doctor resulted in him not thinking that I had a sugar problem. His hunch was that I was suffering from headache-less migranes. It was getting stranger by the minute. I've never heard of that condition. But then, he hadn't heard of mine either!

Today was a day of toiling behind a laptop screen mostly to catch up on emails. I wrote a review for The Birds Of West Ham Park which is a small book written about an urban local patch by an urban birder. All good in my book. I also chose the hotel that I will be staying at in Budapest next month when I go there to research an urban birding article for Bird Watching Magazine. I answered a question posed by the very same magazine about my first ever bird book and my favourite bird book. The answer was easy. The field guide and Eric Simms' book was my favourite. I think that the survey that they are conducting will be published in time for the British Birdwatching Fair in August.

My biggest achievement today was to write a TV treatment that I have been struggling to start for the last 6 weeks in just over an hour. It's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it.

I've still got my copy of the 'field guide' that I had when I was, erm, much younger than I am now.

(just checked; over 30 years. Gawd, now I feel ancient lol)

Still got my copy too! And I've had it for 20 years plus...
