Minsmere- the return?

It's been awhile but I have a few newbies who may want to visit a reserve this spring.

Minsmere on May 28th  is looking likely- you have been warned -

I may bring a scope this time!

  • Well, the hides should be open by then. Hope you make it!

    Our herring gulls are red listed birds.  Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.

  • I bet that date won't arrive quick enough.

    It'll be a grand day whatever, but I hope you have a better than good day.

  • Tx guys-

    if the hides aren't open I may defer to Lakenheath and its environs instead

    I don't think any hides will open before June, as part of the Covid outdoors only policy.

    Out of nosiness, I'm curious on the abbreviation 'TX'

    I used to use that a lot in a former, none nature related life....

    That's a lovely reserve as well - and it only has one hide, the rest are viewing points.

    As I recall, Minsmere said the earliest the hides will open is May 17th.

    It is abbrev for thanks, along with TNX.

    However, I hadn't seen TX or even TNX used outside of professional radio messaging.

  • Of course, in a completely different context TX is the abbreviation for the State of Texas in US postcodes.

    Kind regards, Ann

    I had forgotten, the early days of mobile phones, where texts cost money and were limited to I think 160 characters, inc spaces!

    The fun we had making up new abbreviations, and the lingo got called Text Talk!
