Today is Linda and my silver wedding anniversary. It seems astonishing that we've been married for a quarter of a century - two years longer than we managed with our previous partners!
There've been plenty of hard times, but even more good ones... I put our 'success' down to the fact that we both share passions for birding and astronomy, but also have other interests: Linda has her bees and I have my guitars!
Together we've run five successful businesses, seen well over 400 species of birds in the UK and made some incredible friends. We've travelled the length and breadth of Britain and visited France over 100 times, enjoying some fabulous birds, amazing food and memorable wines together.
To everyone who has been part of our wonderful journey: many, many thanks from both of us!
