Still, a good bird, nay a great bird. Distinctive in the end after a decent grilling.
Photos are on the finders' website here. I love the head-on shot (9th photo down).
Fuck me I was drunk last night. Not as drunk as last Sunday though I suppose. Or Tuesday come to think of it. Nicola tells me what I get upto the next morning just so I know. Apparently last night I kept falling into deep, uncontrollable giggling fits like a little girl for no apparent reason whatsoever with, and I quote, "tears rolling down my face". Sounds like a good night. Just wish I could remember what the fuck I was laughing at because it was clearly highly amusing.
Glenn "Ollie" Oliver, whose father is hopeless at The Sun Dream Team, is working in South Africa (...and I've never met a nice South African and that's not bloody surprising man cos they're a bunch of arrogant bastards who hate black people) and has sent me a nice photo of a dickie bird he's seen there.
Here it is.
Hornbill sp. Let's see that again heavily cropped.
Ah, Yellow Billed Hornbill.
Ollie described it as "I don't know what the fuck that is but it looks hungry".
Too right Ol.
Fucking too right.
