That's it on the downward slope now, 2017 ?
As the year goes on you start to think of the birds missing from your year list, and very often it is the more common species that seem to be absent from the old locations. For me it is the more common species like Corn Bunting, Willow Tit and Little Owl, so as the end of yet another year approaches I shall be making an all out hunt for them to bolster a fairly miserable year list, without travelling to all the corners of the UK.
Some of the latest species grabbed.
Scaup (Priorslee Lake)
Long-tailed Duck (Ellesmere Shropshire)
Green-winged Teal (Venus Pool)
Siskin (Cors Dyfi)
Red Kite (Ynyslas)
Waxwing (Tai Gwyn)
Velvet Scoter (Trench pool Telford)
Velvet Scoter (Trench pool)
With the weather getting a lot colder, but remaining bright December could produce some good species !as we hurtle towards 2017 and the annual first of the Jan search for species to get the new list under way, I expect lots with vagrants close are hoping they stay for the Jan 01 rush.
Doubt we shall have a 01/01/17 Hoopoe this time round.
So as not to bore you with loads of weird rants about random subjects I shall keep it at this
Enjoy and comments in the guest book or Blog end please..
