Iolo Meets The Twitchmeister

Geth and I met Iolo Williams - top Welsh wildilife TV and Radio Presenter and all round good bloke - at Cosmeston Country Park this morning. He was so excited at meeting 'The Twitchmeister' that he insisted on having his photograph taken with him!

We took him over to West Lake where Geth re-found the Ferruginous Duck for him - a UK lifer for the BBC Wales Birdman. Geth resisted the temptation to grip him off - we'd already seen it yesteday (#190 for Gethin). I'm glad to say it gave us far better views today. The Boy Birder also had another lifer today in the form of a Bearded Tit (#191) which was showing from the boardwalk. He narrowly missed adding yet another lifer when a Cetti's Warbler flew across the path in front of me. He was looking the other way!

In the next edition of 'Celebrity Birding' Geth and I will be showing Madonna the 2nd winter Ring-billed Gull at Lamby Lake.

Any truth in the rumours that Ant&Dec want to sign you up for the next series of I`m a Celebrity?

It's very encouraging to see someone so young taking a real interest in birdwatching. Well done the Twitchmeister from all at the CBC.
Young birder of the year is in the bag!

I see the Birdman even borrowed the TM's new bins too.

Ok,so how much is Iolo charging for 5 minutes of fame,first it was GFT "on't tele" (he was bloody good !) and now twitching with the famous Twitchmeister and his dad,some dads will do anything to steal the limelight !!
What next-a new series of Driving School with our Timmy teaching Maureen to drive again !!
By the way ,was talking to Madge earlier(that's what her real birdin' mates are allowed to call her)and she said that she doesn't do birding with guys who haven't yet joined the UK "300 club",think she was talkin' about birdin' !!..

Good to bump into you again today Rob. How about 'I'm a Birder in Glamorgan . . . Get Me Out of Here!'

Surely Madonna, being Transatlantic herself, will be familiar with all facets of RBG topography!

My father in law DID try to teach Maureen to drive, when he was an instructor.....

There is application Digeus I always use it when system freezes. I also use Windsty Tune Up Suite. It tweaks windows to perform better.
