Well, the last 2 weeks and my precious paternity leave have absolutely zipped by in a haze of broken sleep, mustard coloured poo and gorgeous cwtching times. Perspectives certainly have changed and there is so much excitement for the present and the future. I would recommend it to anyone.
BirdBeard-wise, Le Hatt and I missed the Ferruginous Duck at Whitlingham in icy gale-force winds. I then missed it again, a couple of days later, despite seeing something possibly ferruginous for a wee while in the scope before losing it.
My RSPB Gardenwatch was disappointingly quiet. 12 species, 3 squirrels and a cheeky little mouse, with the highlight being a pair of Redwings.
Le Hatt has managed to get out and bag some nice Bewicks and a Redpoll, but the latter half of this month has been about a bit more than birding. Must get back on the list again...at some point...soon...ish.
