Bank Holiday Monday

Was at work all day from 7.30am! So no birding today. Got home at 4pm and fell asleep in the chair. This weather just makes me want so sleep and hibernate until spring!

More news on the Northern Harrier, seen between Thornham and Brancaster on several occasions today.

Obviously there are more birders out and about today as the RBA website has quite a good list for Norfolk today including 10 Long tailed Ducks and 60 Snowbuntings at Holme, 2 Red headed Smews at Wells, 3 Waxwings and The Northern Harrier at Titchwell, 2 Short eared owls and the Northern Harrier at Brancaster, Rough legged Buzzard at Scolt Head Island viewed from Brancaster, Snow Buntings at Holkham, Hooded Crow, 12 Twite, Hen Harrier at Brancaster Staithe, 20 Waxwings and the Northern Harrier at Thornham, Ross's Goose at Cley, Lesser White Fronted Goose remains at Cantley.

Roll on January 1st when I will be doing a bird race! But I won't be year listing in 2011, as I have not got the time really - it took over my life in 2009 even though I enjoyed it VERY much!!!

I have just been listening to Rihanna's new album 'LOUD' - some seriously good tunes and is hot as the Black Eyed Peas's new Album 'THE BEGINNING'


  1. Greetings from Northern Ireland. Glad to see the end of the snow and ice. We had temperatures of -15 - -18.5 here. Had 2 Moorhens in my garden along with a mixed flock of Brambling & Chaffinch. (8-10 Brambling) also Goldfinch, Long Tailed Tits and all the usual garden birds. Some of the photos on my blog.

    Hope to get to Norfolk late 2011, our club are heading to Donana & Extremadura in April.

    Happy New Year and good birding for 2011. Keep up your excellent blogging.
