G Whizz

Great day! Opened with another G bird this morning, the first-footing Grasshopper Warbler of 2015 reeling away at 6:15am somewhere just north of the NFRS HQ at Wessie H. And at 11:15, a text from Mr Malloy (or 'Sir' as he will be known henceforth) that read 'Make REDSTART horse fields next to North burn hill off cycle track view from gate just north of wood'. Well like a WWII Spitfire pilot waiting for the hun to come in over the briny, I dropped my roly, grabbed my hat and flying goggles and ran to the runway to board the crate (I actually put down my coffee, picked up the car keys and walked to the drive to get in the car) and was there in a flash. After what seemed like an age, spotted the little blighter and then ten minutes of trying to get a reasonable shot of what was a hyperactive chap considering its journey north. Anyway, here's the best of a well-shite bunch:
