One Four Seven
In honour of Steve 'Interesting' Davis and his recent geriatric success at The Crucible, I made a 147 this afternoon. Determined to get one of my all-time favourites, I took Mrs Liverbirder up the embankment (oooo-errrrr!) at Bolam (scene of last year's big Nightingale dip) and in an hour had up to four Roe Deer, four million rabbits, Grey Partridge, Yellowhammer, Willow Warbler by the bucket full, Linnet by the ton, Tree Sparrow, Pheasant, Common Whitethroat (No. 146) and best of all, a male Common Redstart (No. 147). Now to pay hommage to Jocky Wilson!
