Well on the stolen memory card front I had my suspicion confirmed when fellow birder Martin Swannell came up to me yesterday to deliver the bad news that he'd found the bag in which they were in. Some considerable distance from where not only had I left them but also in spot I don't stop at. The location does in my mind confirm to me who had them away. It's kind of ripped my gut out, to the extent from now on I'm distancing myself from the whole 'birding scene'. No more exchanging of birds, no more sharing new locations etc, no more reporting of birds not that it matters I don't find to many 'reportables' and no more images for local reports again not an issue as there are many toggers etc I'M JUST MAKING MY POSITION CLEAR. Whilst I'm drawing lines in the sand, those who actually know me and have met me know I'm not exactly the shy retiring type so take note, the individual I believe (I'm rarely wrong) took these cards when I see you next I WILL confront you I will challenge you, if I believe it to be you after confronting you, YOU ARE GETTING KNOCKED OUT. I've notified my picture agencies legal department who have a team that all they do is trawl blogs, magazines, newspapers, websites, social media and photo sharing websites....think I'm joking? Double dare you to post an image....go on.
MASSIVE THANK YOU TO MARTIN SWANNELL and nice talking to you yesterday.
So what did I get from yesterday? Unsurprisingly not much I just wasn't in the mood to be fair, way to angry but I bet you guessed that :-/
