25th February 2007 (At home)

119. Goldcrest Davyhulme

Despite not getting out birding at all this weekend (taking the children to parties and decorating are to be blamed), I managed to glance out into the garden and see two Goldcrests in a bush right beside the window. Very nice.

11th March 2007 (North Wales)

121. Red Kite World's End
122. Black Grouse World's End

Four male Black Grouse at 3pm was a nice surprise... ...saves having to get up too early!

Also had a female Hen Harrier over the car.

A great day!

Makes up for missing that Desert Wheatear... ...after all, there'll be another one (if not in Irlam).
