Miranda to me is not just a beautiful place but more a state of the mind and I have been fortunate to have shared visits with others who also appreciate that. Today was no exception and calling into the Shorebird Centre I was greeted by Delight a lovely lady who was manning the shop while the Miranda team were at the conference in the South Island. Delight reminded me that it was a year ago on the same holiday weekend that I had stayed at the Centre with a birder friend and we had all ended up at the 'new hide'  to watch the birds and witness a wonderful rainbow. That was a year ago and today I was alone but that didnt matter because the the birds put on a show and I knew that I would be calling in to see a friend near Thames after the high tide.
