There have been a number of issues with this blog recently and I was unable to unload any photos - so I posted them om Facebook! I have not gone anywhere other than local birding apart from a run up the m25 to Stockers lake. But at least i am begining to gather in the migrants - altho I am a long way behind my birding mates on our year listing numbers they are on 204 and 205 and I am somewhere in the 160's!Thast due to not driving far and also having to do lots of civic duties! Altho I know that missing geese will be picked up in the Autumn/winter and I am going to Shetland for a fortnight in October so I expect to claw back quite a lot of species later in the year! Still I have managed to squeeze in local trips and Common and Arctic terns were at Staines Res the other day!Terns are a favourite of mine - so delicate! I have been watching the Fulham and Barnes Peregrines on webcast - just awaiting Charlie and Tom's eggs to hatch! My Coal Tits are now regular in the garden - which is great. I also want to spend a long w/e in midweek if that makes sense in Norfolk with a friend during October half term. I have also thought about a trip to West wales to include Skomer in July.....so we will see.
