Nucifraga caryocatactes @ Wageningen!

100 meters from work, bird is there for several days already, an overcast but no rain, cold but not too cold; conditions seemed ok for some serious twitching.

Korean Wood Work

Early 1990’s Korean made Hohner TE Custom Telecaster:

I believe this is/was the same model as reviewed in the February 1994 Guitarist magazine (“The imagery in the magazine review shows a Mark II style headstock, with a Mark III bridge plate (6 saddles)”) Both pickups have been replaced with Fender Tex Mex’s (already regretting not putting a humbucker in the neck position..? Such a heavy guitar). The bridge saddles were replaced with new Chinese ones and a new bone nut and locking tuners installed.

Holy Grails

Thinking of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, I wouldn’t pick any of these two… (thanks Jasper!)

Cleaning up the place for science sake

Almost forgot I kept 'm in storage, but thankfully the scientific community also noticed the value of the 883 moulted feathers collected from below an unusual Barn Swallow winter roost, occurring in the streets of Aveiro (Portugal) some winters ago. They´ll fly from Paris to Canada in the near future, for stable isotope analysis, resulting in another publication in the coming year? But the Andorinhas these feathers belonged to, where are they now?
