    Hi Chris. Missing the dog so going to head straight home this morning. Hoping to get the double ton before the end of the year though, as I’m still missing a couple of gettable species in South Wales. I’m also heading up to Scotland with a bunch of mates in 4 weeks. Rich

    Beautiful down at Rhossili today. Great views of a pair of Peregrines. Kestrels were showing well along with the local Ravens. Chough were a year tick. Ed Hunter found an American Buff-bellied Pipit nearby but my sciatica was giving me so much gyp I couldn’t face the walk. 195. Chough

    Had a day out with my youngest today. Headed up to Burton Mere and the Wirral. Wilson’s Phalarope is a bird I don’t mind travelling for. Would have gone for the Hampshire bird but Wales was still in lockdown. And of course the bird was no where to be seen. Could still be around as there’s so...

    Managed to get down to Sker today. My OH insisted we go shopping for tiles after work which meant a bit of a tense wait. The silver lining though was that she has dreadful taste. So maybe it was better I was there(y) 192. Hoopoe

    Went on a pelagic out of Pembs today. Really enjoyed despite the birds not really playing ball. A great bunch on board. Good to put a face to the name with Terry. And good to see Andy from Pembs again. The birders from Norwich and Watford were good company as well as Heather and Dafydd...

    Lovely morning out with my youngest and the old man yesterday. Headed East to Newport. The Wetlands Centre was very quiet so we headed over to Goldcliff. Bumped into Brian which is always good. Brian mentioned that most birds were over by the Seawall hide so that’s where we headed. Did stop off...

    Headed to Westhay. A lovely little reserve on the Somerset levels. And much quieter (y) Had good views of Marsh Harriers, Kestrel, Sparrowhawk and Great White Egrets. After a bit of persistence I picked up a Hobby as well, hawking for Dragonflies over one of the ponds. 177. Hobby Finished...

    Headed down to Langford Lakes yesterday morning. Lovely reserve but stuffed. I managed to get a quick shot of the falcon, over the shoulder of a birder, and through a small hole in the screen. Left after about 2-3 minutes to find somewhere quieter. Did add Green Sandpiper to the year list as...

    Set the alarm early yesterday and managed to get up before it went off. Left Neath at 4:15 and arrived at Cemlyn Bay just over 4 hours later. A lovely drive with empty roads to enjoy. At Cemlyn I got chatting to a birder from Chesterfield. Amassing a very big year list. First time I’ve been to...
