With the tailor on standby I decided to take up an absorbing new hobby. Not knowing what this might be I stumbled across a book in a charity shop for the princely sum of 50p which I purchased with enthusiasm!
However, my new hobby which did momentarily take my mind away from thoughts of the BWC were soon dashed.
I discovered that my ornithological knowledge of some common birds of Britain was somewhat out. Flicking through the pages I ascertained that a considerable amount of further study and fieldwork would be require in order to make my new hobby viable.
I discovered that:
Black Pigeon was in fact a Crow
Sea Pigeon was in fact a Seagull
Red Chested Pigeon was in fact a Robin
Eagle Pigeon was in fact a Kestrel
Aquatic Long Legged Pigeon was in fact a Heron
I have concluded that the learning curve for my new hobby is just too steep and thoughts of the BWC 2016 have returned!
The search for something to take my mind off it all continues...
