You'll know if you're a regular reader of Polyolbion that birding and cricket are two of my passions. On a trip to Guernsey recently, I managed to combine the two in rather bizarre circumstances, seeing the island's only Fan-tailed Warblers (or Zitting Cistocolas, as they're now more colourfully known) at Port Soif against the backdrop of a match between Japan and Suriname. Yes, Japan and Suriname. Apparently, it was part of the ICC World League Division 7. And no offence to those two countries, but the birds were considerably more enthralling than the cricket.
