This will be my last Blog this year. I hope you all had a great Christmas and are looking forward to 2012 with as much anticipation as I am. ( though probably for different reasons )
Its been a good year .  We have had ups and downs along the way. Some great laughs, some tears and disappointments. A lot of surprises.  But on the whole a good year.
I am pleased with the way this website has turned out, and again I thank you all for your comments. 
I have to thank Richard and Michael for allowing me to this with as much freedom as I have been allowed. I hope it is and will continue to be helpful to those starting out in the hobby (if that is the right word - Lifestyle seems more apt.)
I hope I haven't put any of you off with all my comments about how much time consuming the whole thing is.
I might also add I have had the opportunity to meet a few of you this last year and have to say I am surprised at the enthusiasm you all have for your Birds (A good thing ) I have been helping Richard and Michael for *cough* years now and still cant remember what the differences are between Normal,Opaline, Spangle and thanks to a certain Mr Capes - Regressive s. Let alone all the different colours. Im still with the Blue one or the Green in the corner level. 

though its fair to say Birds dont have engines. I would remember the Desmosedici, M1 or GSV-R.

There will be a new crop of young birds waiting to be shown off, and as soon as Richard gets some free time we will get some photographs put up in the gallery.  Along with updated Aviary pictures when its all finished.
I will update any new news on our medication programme as and when it happens.

The only thing left for me to do is Wish you all the very best for the New Year.
