I suspect that only venerated people such as JZ are allowed to wear sakabula feathers, leopard skins, rhino horns etc, so, unless I get financial aid from Lord Ashcroft, my quest on your behalf will be fruitless.

Regards
Brett

Well, Lord Ashcroft is certainly in a position to give financial aid rather more than most people I would suggest!
I'm actually rather surprised that Meurig has now revealed himself as a Twitcher on this forum! :ohmy:

Sorry Frank - "twitching" - the pursuit of rare birds at unearthly times of the day over vast distances is not my bag. A medal on the other hand...

Brett and Frank
Long ago, I just succumbed to simply not grasping just how all this electronic stuff worked. With a check list I can do certain things - but do not stray. Wilkins is a great help. He and I shoot in the oldest Rifle Club in OZ; founded 1842. He shoots F Class with a huge, rested Match job and a trumpet sized 'scope. Your humble interlocutor uses "iron"sights on a big Target Rifle shot off the elbows between 300 and 800m. Results are not as good as in the past! For a bit of a change, out comes my old .303" No.4 for a few rapids and snaps. Have not shot game for years, nor has Wilkins. Both of us would certainly do so if needed.
Happy days
IL.

I think I was clearly deceived by your use of both "displaying" and "ornithological tick" :)
Thank you for your clarification and pm by the way!
