    I was thinking... I dunno, Moonfleet, The Moondial, Tom's Midnight Garden etc other books I read from when I was a child.

    I love it when the moon is strong enough to cast shadows.

    Me too.

    I know I keep going on and on about this, but have you ever looked at the moon through binoculars? When you do, it's almost like you could take a long step onto the surface.

    In Spain at Xmas, I saw a few times a mass roost of birds (who knows what kind, I'm not an ornithologist) in a single tree, and the most bloodcurdling noise of hundreds/thousands of them talking at once. It really was like The Birds - I don't think I've ever seen anything like it in the UK, but I live in the wrong kind of region.

    Anything like that in Portugal, Rich?

    Er, not sure. Some trees have loads of birds but dunno if in the numbers you described. You see quite a lot of cormorants in tress around here, apparently their shit is very toxic and in the large volumes it's deposited it kills the trees. Also there are bits where there are quite a few storks' nests in a few trees and pylons, obviously not in the same volumes but they are so massive it's quite impressive to see them all together.
