67 and rising

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

Yep, 67 - that is now the stunning year's total for 2010.  A stunning 4 more more species than last year, and the remainder of October to add to the total.

The Wheatear yesterday was a complete surprise.  Although it was moving with determination southwards, I was lucky enough to see it close in (and without optical aids - naked birding I believe it is called) as it first came past.  That's a Wheatear I said to myself.  Bloody hell, I also thought.

Apropos nothing at all, have a picture of a gull that won't load properly.
