Last one for this weeks "Primary" Birds theme for #newbirdpoker   - so here's some Red, Green, Yellow and Blue.........

The ever effervescent +Marilyn Benham will be our host for the coming week, and she will be posting up the theme sometime over the week-end.

If you haven't played along before, you are more than welcome...................

OK guys and gals here’s the rota I promised. I will also post it in the Newbirdpoker community where it will be easier to find than buried deep in your stream:

Announce Theme
w/e of 25/26 June - Marilyn Benham
w/e of 2/3 July - Jim Robertson
w/e of 9/10 July - Nicole Best
w/e of 16/17 July - Barry Scully
w/e of 23/24 July - Jan Glasziou Rainbird
w/e of 30/31 July - Ramprakash R
w/e of 6/7 Aug - Asani Bhaduri
w/e of 13/14 Aug - Dusty Gedge
w/e of 20/21 Aug - Dominique Morice
w/e of 27/28 Aug - John Wade
w/e of 3/4 Sept - Marilyn Benham
w/e of 10/11 Sept - Jim Robertson
w/e of 17/18 Sept - Nicole Best
w/e of 24/25 Sept - Barry Scully

I think it would be useful if the initial post to announce the theme, also said who will be taking over as this will provide a reminder.

If after the rota is posted anyone cannot make a particular week then can I ask that they try to arrange a swap. If this is not possible, then please declare #birdphotodomino (if anyone remembers that!) for that week – anyone can lay a photo down and then people may choose to post a photo which matches a major element of the shot; eg - bird species is obvious, but then swimming, feeding, calling, crested – the possibilities are almost endless.

Early in September I’ll put out a reminder asking for any known non availability for the coming 3 months, although I think for the Christmas period, reverting to #birdphotodomino (possibly based on photos taken in 2016?) means no-one has to mind the helm at that time.

Late in the week and I belatedly get round to "yellow" in this week's "Primary Colours" theme for #NewBirdpoker  curated by myself.

This is a Violaceous Euphonia in the rainforest on Trinidad

Flopping down a pair for +Dusty Gedge and +Jasbir S. Randhawa's single Rose-ringed Parakeets - you may need to look carefully to see the second, more acrobatic bird.

#newbirdpoker   as it stands has a bit of a problem with the handover at the end of each week needing someone who will choose a theme, take an active interest for the week, and then find someone for the following week. A rota has been suggested and I’m prepared to maintain this and take account of non-availability that I’m advised about.

Including myself four people have confirmed they would go on a rota but this really is insufficient in my view so I’m asking for volunteers please?

Note - not limited to the people in the list, anyone with an interest in bird photography at whatever level.......

Not a hope in hell, gave that up years ago
Facilities and staff were very good indeed. Bar menu is a little limited in my view, and the Tandoori Salmon needs spicing up a tad.
