I must get out more.
Birdless weekend for birding sometimes... overtime at work was too much to resist on Friday night, and by Saturday afternoon the extra money was spent on audio and visual gadgets.
Highlights in the garden have been the return of the robins for autumn/winter, dunnock increasing from two to three regular birds (including one that has mastered feeding on the hanging feeder) and the occassional visit from coal tit. Yes, it's that bad.
A text from my mate Sacha in Norfolk told of his success with blyth's reed and yellow-browed warbler on Blakeney Point this morning... maybe we'll start to score in Northumberland soon.
