I hope everyone made use of the good weather yesterday to start their new year list off with a good session. I'm still recording my list today and have so far managed a mind boggling number of.....wait for it.......15! Yep that's not a typo it really is 15. I'm stuck at home being a comfy birder again, sitting on settee coffee in one hand, bins in the other. Oooh wait a minute....make that 16, a male black cap just came in by the feeders, that's the second time I've seen him in a week, he lands by the feeders but I've never seen him eat anything yet.
Last years list ended at 171, so that's already a big target to aim for but I would love to get 200. My garden list topped out at a respectable 32 beating 2011 by 4 birds.
I am due in to hospital Friday for my next operation, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can clear ths infection enough so that they do not postpone it, so I won't be posting any more on the blog until I have recovered enough to go out again. Fingers crossed, once recovered from the op I will be a bit more mobile again and so will definately be pushing to break the 200 count this year.
So the only thing left to say now is Happy New Year to you all, and I hope you all have as good a year as I want!
