That's it!

I've officially retired...from teaching! Culmination of things really. Age, dodgy joints, Louise also retiring this summer and a few other reasons I'll keep to myself...

If you follow you'll know I don't like long posts (mostly), so the above is merely a statement of fact. I can assure you I won't be sailing off into the sunset but I'm looking forward to new challenges ahead...as they say!

Back to Birding. Heard a Cuckoo (74) today from the back yard but still no Swift. I'm thinking of doing a latest arrival list this year. The way it's going I'll be ticking some in June!

Treated myself to a new camera. Limited opportunities obviously but results on feeders promising...


30 feet

Best weather for weeks today...

Congratulations on the retirement, guess you'll be out birding and twitching as soon as you 're fit and well, good luck with it

Good luck on your retirement Alan. You'll be missed. Hope you are well on the mend.

Thanks Richard. Much appreciated. Guess the body is telling me it's time! All the best to you and your family.
