A bit of bully

The Safari went visiting friends this arvo and then diving in to a pub for a long lunch. On the way back to their house a Bullfinch (69) was heard calling.
Later, just before leaving for Base Camp, we took Frank for a quick constitutional before he got in the car and bumped into a small flock of Long Tailed Tits (70).
The tide was well out on their small estuary and the channels have changed dramatically since we were last there, unfortunately there was nothing out of the ordinary, plenty of gulls but too far to be able to pick out any oddballs.
Where to next? Sweden...please...pretty please - there is a gorgeous Great Black Headed (=Pallas's) Gull only a few minutes from Wifey's company's Head Office. In the absence of a plane ticket we'll be on the Long Eared Owl walk at the nature reserve in the morning.
In the meantime let us know what destination the tickets have on them to take you away from your outback.

Well done Warren you spotted the deliberate mistake - Bully should have been labelled up 69 not 68 - peregrine was 68
