Yer probably right Bonehead,
his '97% of Thayer's are hybrids' comment was classic UK400 twaddle. With this and his utterances on the Sussex Parrotbill etc, it's been once again suggested that he's just an attention seeker but that's by the by.
I was just wondering when birders sign up for the 'Judge, Jury and Executioner' experience, why would they immediately stick Thayer's on their UK400Club list when they really should be waiting for the 'Judge, Jury and Executioner to be giving them the nod ? It's probably the wrong question anyway.
Nice to see some of the other bredren there yest.
