So 2010 is here already and night shifts for me over the first four days of the new year!! Not particularly good for birding but i managed Black-headed Gull, Mute Swan and Wigeon before 6am on the 1st! The rest of the day was spent in bed but i managed an hour i the garden before it got dark, resulting in a total of 24 species and 22 for the garden list. A few trips out on the 2nd and 3rd got the year list up to 80 species, including a brief Water Pipit at Marazion. In the early hours of the 4th i flushed a Woodcock from the side of the road in Zennor. So that puts me on 81 sp. so far.
Anyway, back to the garden. The list on 1st January:
4th January 2010
Total = 32sp.
