    Bird species seen just the once in your yard/garden.

    Lesser Redpoll. My mate, who lives about a mile and a half away, gets upset if he goes more than a day without at least 5.

    Judgemental- a Covid Consequence?

    Much quieter week this time, which made my weekend so much better. Working from home- the new normal- secured only the usual garden birds. Cheated a little by putting mealworms on the windowledge, which got a magpie close up. Otherwise, quite quiet on the feeders. This, the dull, grey...

    Making do- additional

    Managed to sneak out locally on Saturday afternoon. Still a bit dodgy underfoot, but this was my only chance of the weekend to get out- my Sunday had been nobbled for dad duties. And when I say 'Dad' I mean 'doing whatever the boss chick had planned for me.' Anyway, back to Saturday. My mate...

    Bird wishlist for 2021

    My life list is 199, and my ambition when I hit that was to visit the Isle of Mull and make WTSE my 200th. Also, well, Mull is fantastic anyway and I've always wanted to visit. I've got 11 months to sort it.
