Unfortunatly this Tawny Owl was injured and had to be taken to a vet where it was sadly put down.

No birds today, was going through my old LP collection and remembered getting these two classic Purple albums in 1976 off my mum. I remember getting up at 4AM and listening to them both twice. Made in Japan is still one of the best live albums of all time, the guitar solo on Highway Star is awesome (Blackmore at his best).

Canadian power trio Rush in their hey day. One of my favourite bands are touring Britain again after a 3 and a half year gap. Ive seen them seven times over the years but I wont be going next May because of the astronomicle ticket prices. I think the first time I saw them the cost of a ticket was about £3, Ill have to check that, Ive probably still got the stub. I would love to go, they do a 3 hour set and two of the band members are birdwatchers.

A Curlew over High Road Well Moor this PM was a bit of a surprise. Bumped into Mike Henshaw again, he had come up from Brighouse to look for the Med Gull, unfortunatly it wasnt here. 6 Herring Gulls flew north and the Carrion Crow that looks like a bonxie was here again.
