2 years on...

The blog celebrated it's 2nd birthday yesterday. Congratulations and thanks go to Jeff Slocombe for providing the new header photo.

Our 2nd birthday finds the recording area in a rich vein of form with a lots of good birds spread around the county. In recent days we've had an impressive collection of birds confirmed, or likely still present, in the area.

Lesser Scaup, Long-tailed Duck, Velvet Scoter, Black-throated Diver, Black-necked Grebe, Great White Egret (2), Spotted Redshank, Iceland Gull, Glaucous Gull (2), Bonaparte's Gull (2), Great Grey Shrike and Snow Bunting.

All good stuff, and hopefully more to be found...
