A VERY BELATED HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE
Well here we go again another year and will try to make this one as positive as possible, So started off the new year with my first outing for three weeks on Sunday 2nd for a good six hours birding.
Mark, Ashley and myself started at 8am and finished at 2pm by which time my new year list stood at 78 species, with some good birds seen, the best being 2 Waxwings which were lifers for me.
Some of the others being
And with a short trip to Stithians Res today brought the total up to 82, including Water Rail and 6 Goosanders all Redheads (Females)
The weather over the two days was glorious
COLD, WET, CLOUDY, FOGGY FLAT LIGHTING everything a photographer needs.
So a few images from the last two outings.
Caught the water rail below having a good bath.
So may I say welcome to Eddie who decided to follow the blog, hope you enjoy it.
Also as from tomorrow morning I am going to catch up on all of your blogs, and sorry that I have neglected them over the last couple of weeks.
