Buckingham Palace

A Highland cow - absolutely nothing to do with anything royalty!
I've been invited to Buckingham Palace!!

I opened an invitation sent on from my agent today that had a request by the Queen's hubby himself for my presence at the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust's Peter Scott Centenary Celebrations at the end of March.

I was gobsmacked! I never though that I'd ever get an invite to the Queens gaff in my life - and here I am wondering what a 'lounge suit' is! Oh, and it will be funky handshakes for me no bowing or dropping on one knee -I can tell you that now!

Speaking of things formal, yesterday's talk in Westminster at the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) went well and in fact, they have asked me back, which was nice.

I'm in serious danger of becoming part of the establishment!

This is amazing. And I can say I commented on your blog *before* you rubbed shoulders with royalty.

Sir Urban Birder? - has a certain ring to it!
