The Story So Far....

Posted Sunday 27th January 2019 at 20:24 by Green Sandpiper
Its only the end of January..... but even so, this year has started off much better than previous years. Not only in terms of birds seen (I'm on 74, which isn't stellar) but in terms of the enjoyment I'm getting from it.

Since my last post (I really need to up my output...) I've had a mixed bag of days out. A trip East to Musselburgh was 'different' since I'd forgotten my binos, and had to bird by camera. But while previously this would have been catastrophic and flung me into...

1st January: New Year ‘bird race’

Dr. Rob Tovey

Posted Monday 22nd October 2018 at 15:42 by brackenb
