Homework

Posted Wednesday 9th January 2013 at 22:13 by Green Sandpiper
Found myself out and about a few days ago. Family duties meant I couldn't do my normal patchwork. Instead, and spurned on again by my guilty conscience, I decided to complete my core survey square for the BTO's winter thrush survey. While the other areas I've been surveying were local, and my own choice, this core square was chosen for me. Caught up in the wave of enthusiasm, I heartily agreed to it, only latterly realising it was miles from anywhere.

North Wales- Wader Quest

Posted Monday 7th January 2013 at 00:13 by Rick and Elis
On a Wader Quest jaunt to North Wales (more info on www.waderquest.org) we had time, to look at other birds thanks to Alan and Ruth's (The Biggest Twitch http://www.thebiggesttwitch.com/) excellent local knowledge leading to us getting our two target birds (Purple Sandpiper and Jack Snipe) relatively easily.

New Year, New Enthusiasm

Posted Thursday 3rd January 2013 at 21:58 by Green Sandpiper
One of the best parts of the festive season is that we get 2 days off for New Year, just at the time that the wife and mini- sandpipers are exhausted from the excitement of it all. This allows scope for me to make a good start to the year's birding, knowing that all too soon we'll be back to the grind of work and the other things that 'life' does to curb my birding.

Clyde Estuary- 26th December- A Winning Whim

Posted Friday 28th December 2012 at 22:28 by Green Sandpiper
I'm big on traditions, big on continuity to the past, often to the extent that I verge into nostalgia and denial that things change.

Anyway, one of these traditions is that each Boxing Day, Mrs Green Sandpiper takes the mini- Sands to the pantomime with her mother and our niece. Having an aversion to panto, and my mother- in- law, tradition dictates that I do my own thing- a clear euphemism for birdwatching.

Normally, I'd stay local, do some patch work. This year,...
