New Years Day
Happy New Year everyone.
Right - first New Years Resolution is that I will keep this blog up to date. We will see if I manage to do it.
First trip out of the year was on a freezing first day of January over to meet my friend Martin Dyer at Slimbridge. As it was very cold, most of Slimbridge was iced up, and so after a relatively fruitless morning, we moved to a site that Martin was familiar with to look for Short Eared Owls.
The light was grey and flat, but everything was covered in a thick frost which provided to the most wonderful backdrop to the farmland.
We spent 3 hours watching these wonderful birds who were joined by a Kestrel, Peregrine and a Barn Owl.
