We Are Very Proud Of . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

our son-in-law, Charlie Elder. Charlie is a passionate birdwatcher and set out to discover about and get a glimpse of the 40 birds on the UK "Red List" - this is his book about his travels and experiences. How he managed to juggle his work, family life and responsibilities as well as dash off at the slightest notice to view these endangered birds is amazing. The elusive Wryneck gave him some trouble! Charlie lives on Dartmoor with his long suffering family who sometimes are conned into a holiday but somehow instead it turns out to be a birdwatching exercise! We received this copy of his book at the weekend but it goes on sale tomorrow! Good luck Charlie - you have worked long and hard.

You must be proud. I'm thinking that Robert may well have heard of him. I shall ask.
Wish him luck with the book. It looks like it could be a probable birthday present for himself.
