We've arrived; we've set the stand up; and we're ready to rock 'n' roll at 9 tomorrow morning — Marquee 3, stand 14 if you're passing.
After setting up, we headed out for a bit of birding: Osprey, Little Egret, Yellowhammer, flocks of Linnets. All very pleasant, and a nice change from Feral Pigeons and screaming parakeets.
And what of the weather?
It's not actually all that bad. The ground at Egleton is still quite firm — no doubt helped by the plastic tracks that have been laid — though it looks like marquee 7 might be teetering on the edge of a muddy abyss. We'll report back with more mud news tomorrow.
More importantly than the weather, what about the barrow boys and girls? Don't worry, there're here with horns in hand.
Josh and Stephen are particularly excited that the BirdGuides news app is now on Android as well as iPhone:
