Not much doing at West Hartford today - no sign of the little-ringed plover (it was pouring with rain so I was not there long!) - just a few soaked black-headed, herring and lesser black backed gulls.
Nice to see that Madness have announced a tour that does not involve big atmosphereless arenas' - tickets for the Newcastle show are already available via pre-sale on their website. My December gig list is improving all the time - yeah yeah yeahs and Madness at the O2 Newcastle, then Spiritualized at the Sage, Gateshead just before Christmas. Happy days indeed!
