Assessing the rarity factor and 'hot' news from Bristol

Wonderful stuff! At last a definitive guide to allow a birder to participate in self examination of stools and assess for him / herself  the physiology of the human body is affected by the state of mind - or even allow a mate to assess your state of mind.........................................................

A copy has been pasted into my notebook as a reminder for our forthcoming Shetland jaunt. Brilliant piece of work by John Lawlor. See his website at: http://lalarinho.webs.com/birdingnonsense.htm.
Quite timely really as the RBA 'mega alert' has just gone off - Tufted Puffin in Kent..................................
Thousands of birders are now leaving the bathroom thinking was that a Type 5 or 7?
On another Bristollian matter it has been brought to my attention that Bristol Students Union suffered a major fire yesterday.
"Bristol University's student union was evacuated today after a storage shed full of canoes caught fire.Residents who live opposite the building saw thick black smoke coming from a shed in the front of the building in Queen's Road, Clifton, just before 9am today.The windows of a room with a swimming pool shattered due to the heat of the fire. Staff also had to be evacuated from the building.
Avon Fire and Rescue had the blaze under control by 9.30am. Queen's Road was closed during the operation"

Rumour has it the blaze was caused by our old birding mate Paddy O'Poynton childishly trying to set alight to the gaseous emissions caused by several curries and numerous pints of rough cider on a night out. Just as well he didn't cough!
