Cowart's Common Room

Just dashing in to say hello, down in Granton on Spey this week at the BBC Wildlife Magazine Book Fest. HO is one of the Authors involved and they have put us all up in the lovely old Grant Arms Hotel for the week...
...and we have our own little turret in the corner of our room! Very Happy

It's so dinky you can only stand up in it, there's just room for a chair if you pull it in after you.
Just having a wee break before the afternoon and evening talks - The secret life of flies, then Hedgehogs and tonight David the "Urban Birder" after dinner.
HO is on tomorrow followed by Polly and her Pine martens and Stephen to tell us the stories behind how some birds got their names called "Mrs Moreau's Warbler"
I can't remember who all is on on Friday.

A nice wee break before the summer - we won't get another until November.Very Happy

Fennie's Avatar Now what I should like to know is how you took that selfie! I thought for a moment that it might be the inventor of Marmelade herself but I doubt she'd be still smiling.

Still it's intriguing and probably safer than the Ecuadorean Embassy! Very Happy

Fennie's Avatar Why is it that no one is called Rapunzel - even on PC? It's rather a nice name. Very Happy

KitKatCot's Avatar Yes, Rapunzel, throw down your hair, I will rescue you!

Err... no I won't. You don't look like you need rescuing!

Have a lovely time, enjoy yourselfVery Happy

Lampworkbeader's Avatar Have a great time! Though I don't think I'd want to know that much about the secret life of flies. Blink

Most importantly did you know without a certain little fly (the only insect to pollinate the cacao plant) we wouldn't have any chocolate? Shocked
