John, on Friday at 2pm i wasnt going to send, then I stupidly changed my mind, wont happen again, never will my birds be at Tow Law if a strong west wind is forecast, our doos will all be down the coast, and when Parry is telling you he was nearly getting blown off the ladder whilst cutting the strings?????
