We do go cross-eyed! After I come up from a session at the scope, it is
about 15 minutes before I can focus properly.  Good thing the cars knows
where to go.

Often when we arrive at the sandbanks, and I see with sinking heart what
lies ahead (thousands of birds to count), all I can think is, "I want my
mother!", but then after I settle down, it's just routine.

I must do a posting on this week's survey, as it's been a little while.
