Soundtrack info: Not sure of title, it was an early experiment with Audioswap when that service was still at Beta Version. Unlike some tracks I chose then, this one remained free and I didn’t have to replace it, but the credits are not showing and I don’t have them. I’ll be glad to add here if anyone knows.

This was a nice close-up of a stork just walking the roadside near to the hotel where I stayed the night after the Copenhagen conference.
When we went to the Copenhagen conference I met the other guys at Motel Petro in Torzym on their way out and left my Chrysler in the guarded carpark there. We took Adam’s one to Denmark. Then we got back to here, Adam and Kasia went on to Katowice to set her off, but I had to go the next day to Gorzow Wielkopolski – some of the footage from then I already had placed on YT before this – and so I went my own way from there.
It was a simple ornithological piece, which I hoped would interest some people. If you click through and look at the stats on YT, though, you’ll see that there was very little interest in this piece for the first six months, which did disappoint me, but then gradually the hits started to come in, and now it is coming up to 6,000 hits, and running at a healthy rate.
