Summary of an eventful couple of weeks celebrating Jan's 70th. It started with a family break at Exmouth/Topsham moved on to a week in the Scilly Isles, courtesy of Jan's sister Gill, and finished with a short stay with old friends in rural Somerset. The pace was leisurely and mainly relaxed. Birdwatching was minimal with little migration noted although it would have been rude not to have had a look at the Semi-palmated Sandpiper on St Mary's or noticed the previously un-noted Yellow browed warbler on Bryher.

Apologies for the lack of 'family' images but I used my phone camera which I'm taking time to download.
Hi,I've lived and worked in Warwickshire all my life, now retired my lifelong interest in wildlife is now my main hobby. Birding in particular both local, national and in the Western Palearctic region is a major interest. I am very happily married to Jan and have two great kids Rachel and Paul,and 2 beautiful grandchildren
