Well I have to say that I was most impressed with all the helpful replies  
to the leech sock problem.  I had no idea leeches were so popular!  
Having weighed up all the information I booked a romantic night out 
with Michele for my anniversary and turned up at the restaurant wearing  
white extra thick close knit socks over my sensitive parts, bagon 
aftershave and ordered a nice bottle of flageldoryx chloroquinine. The  
evening was a complete success I did not get bitten once.  I think it was  
the draw string tied around the leg that really did the trick although  
Michele found the stockings/pantyhose under the socks a bit too kinky,  
but no leeches so there we have it, problem solved, we will be going to  
the Manly Pacific next year too.  (ask for an ocean view) 
Getting back to reality the best options that came out of this in my  
opinion is to make your own socks or purchase a pair of gortex socks 
from mountain design or a similar outdoor outlet. 
Thanks for all the responses now lets get back to birding.
