birds : Quite disappointed today that the weather was so fine. This meant that the Gannet-ringing team managed to have a long session and get onto both colonies (ringing over 900 birds!) which meant that they are not returning on Saturday when I was going to join them. Perhaps next year the visit will be on a weekend.

nonsense : This afternoon I became a basic level Touch Rugby coach during a 4 hour training session. The sport was not as I expected - quite high on tactics and rules, and not so much expansive, free-throwing and running play, but I was pleased to see that it seems to be based on Rugby League rather than Union. It did seem a suitable sport though to play with mixed-sex teams at school. Nevertheless it was good fun trying it out and I thought I did very well despite many of the other people there being literally half my age!
