A happy new year and happy birding to all!

2019 was not a great birding year for me with only 229 birds (vs 358 in 2018) mainly due to a relative lack of travel. We'll see how this year pans out, and I hope to spend more time birding my local patch although with two active kids that's not always a priority.
