Just a note to say I’m still here! Due to other commitments and annoyingly drawing in evenings I haven’t been out much or seen much of note over the last week or so. I did have a short trip up to Redmires on Saturday morning to see if I could find any redpolls (a glaring gap on my yearlist!) but it was so windy I saw next to nothing – a flock of 12 goldfinches and the usual mallards and tufted ducks, and seven mistle thrushes and a flock of starlings on Redmires Road, were about all the birds I saw.
Hopefully I’ll get a few bits and bobs over the weekend to discuss on here! I’ve just started a course in Environmental Conservation at Sheffield University, and tomorrow is my first field trip – hopefully there’ll be something to write about there.
