Hello Franky,

I think Bob has mentioned that my son & I will be joining you on Saturday.  He's the expert, not me - he's been birding since he first noticed the blackbirds in the garden and recognises calls, songs  juveniles, etc. He's 14 now.  We have been following ABS activities fir some years now and have watched it grow steadily and are now proud to be members.

We are ex-expats having lived in Puerto Santa Maria for 10 years until 2011.  Our 'patch' was our wild garden and Valdelagrana.  We used to go ringing from time to time with the Ardea group in Cadiz, which was the last time we went to la Janda - night ringing of nightjars, a couple of years ago. Nico's job was to release the birds.  There's not a day goes by when we don't ask ourselves why we ever left!

Nico & I look forward to taking off from Apolo xi at 9.30am on Saturday,

Sue Devs
