Just thought I'd take take the opportunity to wish you all; friends, birders, blog surfers and nosey buggers an outstanding Christmas and a great new year. Its interesting to ponder what new birds may be found in the new year but I guess weve all got our own wish lists.
Probably wont get out today, just got to get Pork pies for Boxing Day, but got a garden year tick this morning as a small flock of Golden Plover in a tight V formation flew quite low over the back garden, probably disorientated by the heavy fog we've got here at the moment. Its interesting that Warwickshire seems the favoured destination for wintering Great White Egrets at the moment, we certainly seem to have our fair share. Perhaps we can expect more Cattle Egrets and the odd Night Heron as well.
