An armchair endemic tick!

Well i will try out this blogging thing with a very nice armchair tick.

I dont think there is a problem adding this, in that there is no necessity for secrecy, but really could be misleading.

Also identification is so tricky that it if looking for the Avon Sorbus best option is to see is Libby is able to help, or I can as I have been shown most.
