Just checking out this new website and blog,it looks lovely,very mod,crisp,clean and fresh.The pictures appear to be really clear and bright.

Not alot to report birding wise,the birding seems to have been in the doldrums just lately,all this low cloud and mist and fog has been a pain.Other areas have had bright sunshine all week.Anyway the local birds are all getting on with it.This blackbird we’ve got sings it’s head off each morning well before sunrise.I swear it was singing to the tune of Rock the Boat by the Hues Corporation this morning![it got to number6 in ’74].Down on the river a pair of Mallards have already got 5 chicks,well 4 now as one was being eaten by a crow on Weds.An angler tried to save it,but too late.
