'Junior Baldie' arrived at Maidstone Hospital today. Weighing in at 8lb 6oz, the little lad and his Mum had done well to avoid the peak Autumn migration season - something that I realy shall be eternally grateful for.
With the Green Heron still in Kent, perhaps I should get him off to a flying start. No, that won't work - he'd only rebel against something that was forced on him. No, I'll play the old reverse psychology game, force football upon him and not tell him about the great natural history al around him - that'll get him birding! We'll see.
