Italy or bust!


This photo was taken on March 9th when the Italian ‘Block-heads’ (Teste Dure, Oasis 258) decided to go ahead with plans to organise the 14th European Convention in 2021. The venue will be the historic city of Prato in Tuscany, about twenty kilometers from Florence. In Avifauna the Italian plans will be unfolded and put to a vote. Teste Dure is the only candidate to host the next convention!
