Nationally my four 'new' birds were seen at widespread locations in both England (3) and Scotland (1). The rest of my 'Top Ten' come largely from an autumn trip to the Shetland Isles and visits to North Norfolk. Unfortunately Short toed Eagle and Yellow billed Cuckoo don't make it as I failed to get decent photos of either. So, the rather less interesting Barred warbler and R B Fly do. I know many of these images have featured in the old Blog before but I make no apologies for putting them up again as they bring back a lot of great memories over the year. Hope you enjoy them too. Oh and a very happy New year to you all.
