Thanks for taking the time to read this blog over the last seven years or so and sharing the good times we all had together.
Take care, enjoy your birding and goodbye.
....and to end with a bit of humour
|This was the best place to see it. More sheltered here|
|Spot the 2bar Greenish (its just a shot of the bush actually but of course you can look for it. Ain't on the photo though)|
|The "Lich" nailed this one|
|This marvellous helpful gentleman is awarded the coveted Honorary member of the Clayheads.|
|Portland Bill R B Fly by "Lich"|
|An amazing flock of 62 Barnacle Geese over Westport. Slimbridge bound?|
|Bunch of amateur dudes to be honest. More interested in chatting and one mistook a Wheatear for the Rock Thrush|
|I borrowed this picture from twitter and I thank the original photographer from the bottom of my heart, and if you are ever in England's finest city, I'll show you on a map where Westport is.|

The other trip I forgot about was to County Durham for the Scops Owl at Ryhope. Hilda's nephew had a day off in the week and went then, and so when it came on again on the Saturday, it was too good an opportunity for me to miss and I made the solo trip north. Not a bird you see everyday in Britain, and looked better in daylight this time than by torch light.
