On Tuesday the 8th of October 2013 Lill one of our flock migrated to Australia, she hitched a ride on a much bigger bird (Qantas). Before starting her journey she stopped off for a feed with the rest of her flock at the 'Mandarin Royal' Holyhead.
We all had a smashing Chinese meal and everyone was able to say their last farewell. As well as showing pictures of the night I have include pictures of South Stack were Lill used to work. This will give her the opportunity to show her new friends down under where she used to work.

more of the flock!
We had a collection and Dave our site manager presented it to Lill
Lill looks to be quite pleased with our gift.
Whilst going to my car for my camera I came across three marauders outside taking in the evening air. they are: from your left, Kathy Seamus and Lynne.

The Cafe where Lill used to work. the lady in the picture may be Lill, I can't quite make her out. Only kidding, below is the same cafe after the RSPB have spruced it up a bit!
above is a view of the South Stack reserve. The name 'South Stack' refers to the name of the rock on which the Light House is built.

Well you have done it now Lill. What will we do? If you want to ever see again the flower below (not a match for you of course) you will have to see it at South Stack because this is the only place in the world were it grows.
