20th March. A slice of humble pie

I was informed last night that Mr 'Sweary' Hague's Drunk Birders blog has made it into the Birdwatch Top of the Blogs list. I can only console myself with the fact that I was part of the inspiration during those dark early seperation days, when several of us were in an unfortunate state whilst watching a Pechora Pipit. Well done John though I notice you have them in your links you bloody creep!

The birth of the Drunk Birders.

Inspired by my latest house list addition I decided to check the total and was quite impressed to have amassed a total of 78 species, highlights being Kingfisher, Redstart, Whimbrel and Hobby. However with the addition of three cats, to the household, the list could grow rapidly albeit with dead specimens!! I might post the list when I can be bothered.

The only birding highlight of the week so far was booking the flights for the annual October Shetland trip. Anyone who is looking into this would do well to book the mainland leg through Flybe and not BA it's £100 cheaper and you fly on the same plane!! Total cost for Birmingham - Aberdeen - Sumburgh £157 - bargain.
