  12. Great that this Blackbird has water to cool off in, Bob. It's important that we leave as much water out as possible for the wildlife in these hot, dry, times. Thank you for the reminder. With my very best wishes - - - Richard

    1. Wow, 35 degrees, that is horrible John. Our hides at Slimbridge are 25 degrees, and I felt hot.
