burnt out scooter
first day on the patch this year mon 25th jan a bit of a late start but better late than never checked out the island first there were plenty gulls about but no white wings mainly black heads common and herring,
in the horse field were a flock of roughly 70 redwings but no fieldfares yet{bogey bird}i am hoping to have a good go at patch listing this year after a couple of poor years where i have totally neglected the area theirs no point in having a blog called castle birding if i never visit the fucking place.
i have spent too many years chasing other people birds but this year i will be trying to find my own but i imagine i will get tempted away from my patch now and and again to see some rarities but whats wrong with that .
