Many of us go out  birding slathered with sunscrene and sprayed well with
insect repellent.
A Physician and Sportsmedicine journal warn us that the combination of bug
repellent and topical sunscrene can be toxic if  APPLIED SIMULTANEOUSLY.  It
is suggested that we apply sunscrene early in the day and the insect
repellent a bit later in the day.  They can both be worn but should not be
APPLIED  simultaneously.
The toxicity can result in rash, low blood pressure, dizziness and/or
headaches.  It can be especially toxic to children.
I mention this to you all because it can be so very difficult to drag home a
dizzy birder who has fallen over the cliff.
Heres to better birding.
