We were reading in the Bismarck Tribune yesterday about a bunch of turkey vultures that have decided to roost on the water tower 2 blocks away from our house. I went to have a look last night. There were loads of them all perched on different bits of the twoer.

Just before we put the kids to bed this evening, we looked out that way, and we watched toem coming in to roost. There were tens of birds swooping in from all ditrections. They circled the water tower for a while and then they disappeared behind the trees. I tried to take a photo of that too, but the pictures didn't really turn out. If I get a better shot I will post it on flickr.

Check out some more of my vulture shots on flickr.

I have a job!

I now have a job to go to. Starting Tuesday 5th September. I will be working for a local engineering firm as a developer in ther IT section.

I am looking forward to getting back to work after a three month break. It will be good to finally get back into real life again. I'm sure I am going to suffer some more culture shock in the next coming weeks. I think there are going to be some aspects of working in the private sector in Bismarck that are different to working in the public sector in Edinburgh.
