Thats all Folks (till September anyway)

April 1st we fly back to a very cold UK, a few days later starting work and moving back out to Scolt Head Island, Norfolk, UK. Where for the 16th season I will be the Natural England warden for six months babysitting the sites breeding terns and shorebirds.

The blog will go into hibernation until the second half of September when we return to Thailand. I can still be contacted if anyone has any comments or needs information at
