    Also, it could have been swimming duck but no flying rats so far 😀

      Darko, no flying rats unless you count the pigeons!

    Btw, I like your The Stranglers post. I’ve seen them alive only once, in Belgrade in 1992.

      Darko, thanks! Those pix are going down a storm! Music is obviously more popular than wildlife 😀
