Birding Packed Lunches

Paul A's picture of his packed lunch has inspired me to start this thread. What do you have in your packed lunch? If you prefer to dine in style, which pubs, RSPB cafes or takeaways do you recommend? Pictures would be good too.

I'll start with our normal:

  • Cheese and onion sandwich
  • One (or two for a full day) energy bars
  • One pack (each) of cheese and onion crisps
  • Bottle of tap water

Our best ever lunch (late) was in Sardinia. We'd just finished a 12 mile walk in 35 degree heat and had core temperatures rather hotter than the sun. We staggered onto the terrace of a sea-front cafe and ordered huge bowls of Italian ice-cream with half litre of Peroni  chasers - wonderful :-)

  • I have this in my packed lunch and apart from the apple and the cheese, I don't fancy the rest of it !

  • In reply to Sooty:

    Well how funny is that,I thought MrsTs packed lunch was exceptionally healthy,when I mentioned it to O H she thought it was rather a lot.Just shows how different people see same thing differently.

    Like your lunch Andrew!!!! (well, with the exception of the black pudding bit)

    I'm actually going on a birding day out tomorrow and have just been shopping for a few bits...

    Ham sandwich (brown bread of course!!), cherry tomatoes, cheese and onion crisps, cereal bar and some grapes.  Could do with a few of Andrew's Roses chocolates to go in with that!!

    Let me know when you're out & I'll come too, I haven't had a treacle tart in years & years. I worked in a bakery for a year in UK (quality control & I tasted it all) but the treacle tart was my "to die for".

    I walked around Ravensbury Park and Morden Hall Park for about 5 hours yesterday. My sustenance was a small bottle of cherry Lucozade and three rolls of Maynards wine gums. An exceptionally unhealthy diet. It works for me though. I sometimes substitute the Wine Gums for American Hard Gums.
