As has become an annual event, I'm leaving the family and mutt behind to wallow in all things natural history for a few days. I have no expectations other than the hope that it won't pee down all the time, blow a gale and that my optics remain fully functional. If they have wi-fi (some hope) then I might even be able to post.
Rather perversely for a so-called birder, the last thing I want when I stay at an obs is for something incredibly rare to turn up. I want to have a bit of space when I visit one, not share it with a mob of blokes carrying ladders. So, unless I stumble across something just as I'm about to leave, I sincerely hope that I don't jam in.
