24th February 2008: Having a quick review of my list so far this year (birds ringed this year marked with a * and lifers are in bold and underlined). As you can tell, i haven’t been too active yet so far – too much work and not enough play methinks! Sorry its not listed in species order but in alphabetical order. Will update as the year goes on! Think a serious birding weekend away is called for – will start planning immediately! Maybe Norfolk or Suffolk……
