If you are not a fan of carotenoid-rich algae, but still wish to wear that becoming blush for Mothering Sunday, help is at hand. In celebration of the coming weekend, The Management at 10,000 Birds have generously offered a special, all expenses paid trip to a pampering spa in Florida (they will not actually be paying the expenses, but it is assumed that at some point someone, somewhere, will end up paying. They asked me to make that clear).

The lucky winner will be whisked (again, although there will be much whisking done, The Management have asked me to make it clear that they will not be doing any of it) to Orlando on the Saturday morning before the big day and the treatments will culminate in a magnificent pink rinse. Whilst The Management hope that the lucky winner will be a hard working mother, deserving of recognition and a well earned break, the prize is open to all comers. As you can see, the pink rinse looks equally good on a fella and the Disney Gay Day is fast approaching.

The nom de blog, Redgannet, was adopted to add an air of mystery and to make himself more attractive to women. His father first whetted Redguga's appetite for all things natural by buying him his first pair of 7x35s and a copy of Thorburn's Birds. Having no mentor beyond an indulgent parent, he spent the first season hoping for an Egyptian Vulture at the bird table in his English garden. His most memorable birding moment is seeing an Egyptian Vulture with those same binoculars 26 years later. Redgannet is married to Canon, but his heart and half of his house belongs to Helen and their son Joseph. He is looking forward to communicating with people who don't ask if he is searching for the "feathered variety" of bird.
