    Thank you Miles for keeping us in touch with Toronto bird and wild life. We miss our walks but go hither and yon to explore parks and local areas here! Graham bought me a pair of 10 x 42’s which are great. Thank you for all the great walks. If you are cruising and ever come into Dover we will be living about 20 mins away! We have just bought a dear little house in a gorgeous village. Take care.
