Cool! I'm originally from south stafffordshire, near Wolverhampton-no steam heritage down there but up here theres loads of it! Not only is it the place where the railways started (the world's first passenger steam loco service began in Shildon, near Darlington) but also the first new Steam loco for 50 years , the Tornado, was built here and unveiled last year.

I used to work in the computing section as a programmer. I think if I had been working with the rolling stock I wouldn't have found the job so hateful!

Strange how much this heat has changed the diptera families You will find up here. A lot more small Tachinidae and Miltogramminae flying. This is from today during my Miltogramma hunting trip with +32 degrees Celsius ( and that is a lot up here Frown)

Hi, this is a photo of me dressed as a cross between Harry Potter/Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars (actually, my graduation as molecular biologist):

This is myself, Paul Bedell. I am interested in lower Brachycera. But when this photo was taken I was chasing after the dragonfly Tanypteryx hageni.

A quick photo showing Barbara Ismay, Monty Wood and myself working here on my neotropical collection and having a great time. It's just incredible to see Monty work - we haven't touched a key seriously, yet we have 2/3 of the tachinids to genus already! I am learning so much and receiving some very nice compliments from Monty along to way too, which is very encouraging Grin

One more day to go and so many tachinids to identify! Wink

Thanks Eric ... yes, if I look a little "washed out" it is as a result of my tired brain trying hard to take in all the information Monty has been throwing at me for 2 days Grin It's as much as I can do to write the det-labels, take notes on the host information, prepare the next round of specimens (he works so fast that you always have to have a dozen more tachinids ready) and try manfully to field the questions he asks me as he tests whether I have been paying attention for the last 48 hours! Grin

The best part for me though has been to see how excited he has been to see the material I have collected over the last few years. I seem to have some really unusual species and that has whetted his appetite to visit French Guiana and has shown him variation and new forms that he has never seen before, which is no mean feat for someone as experienced as Monty Smile

Well, I noticed during the last summer months that my eyes are getting worse and worse. It is the curse of age. So, I asked our national Saint, Sinterklaas, for head magnifier with led-lights. It looks idiot, but it works. I will be able, I hope, to put the pins on the correct places and not any more everywhere except in the thorax.

Besides some Sphaeroceridae and Trichoceridae there were no flies in Marienwaerdt today (I do not want to think about the Calypterates), so I took a photo of my myself.
