Geoff asked me to send him the video of the Ostrich, next to the restaurant.
Then he decided that I could do it myself.
I told him that I wasn't sure how to do it. He said now's your chance to learn. So here it is.

A fast learner, well done.....not what you might expect in the Algarvian countryside though !...perhaps he's next week's Prata de Dia.....
