More Repeats

13 Sep

I gone up Farlington Marshes today. It got me thinking about how birdwatching is a lot like Fawlty Towers on Gold. I liked Fawlty Towers once. But now, having seen the same twelve episodes over and over again, it bores me to tears. I still watch it though.

Here’s the miserable selection of repeats I seen today.
