Great shot!!! What a sight!! How'd it smell?
John Prior: Not really, although Jazz favours bird dropping to roll in, which always ends in a bath. To answer your question 'Blighty' is a slang term for Britain, first used during the Boer War, but mostly used in WW1. It was also the term used for badly wounded soldiers who needed to be shipped home 'going on Blighty'

I think this lot consider there's safety in numbers
John Prior: Yes indeed, their droppings are also more attractive than ours smile
Roosting rocks like this are so important for birds. They are the only place not developed by man sometimes.
John Prior: Very true Mary
Isn't Guano worth a lot of money? Or is this something else. Anyway it makes for a good shot,John. Thanks for the Blighty explanation,I had wondered where that came from.
John Prior: Yes it used to be, I wonder if the accumulated over many years supplies have gone now and along with shipping costs would still be profitable?
Fine shot John, there must be years worth of droppings on there.
John Prior: I suppose the rain and spray wash a lot away from the rocks
I like this
John Prior: Thank you Preyl
