WEEK 1 SIGHTINGS

Ok, so after how well some people have been doing on their Bird Races, whereby they try to sight as many new species within the year, I think my bird sightings could be seen as a little modest…

However, I was very pleased with this weeks sightings – 3 new species to me and a lot of smiles generated from keeping an extra note of my wildlife encounters so far this year!

Here is the list so far then… (starting from the most exciting, of course!)
