It wouldn't be cricket if I didn't do the traditional end of year Blog post...would it?
Not a classic in terms of personal rarities...but I guess that's partly due to the fact I've been "at it" for quite a while now!
Highlights, well, 2 British ticks in the form of Orphean Warbler and P.G.Tips...
Also saw a Hooded Merganser and a Thayer's Gull.
Finally managed my Yorks Cory's at Holmpton plus great views of Pallid Harrier at Patrington. The White-spotted Bluethroat at Spurn in early April was special, especially the close views obtained.
I don't do prolonged posts but just to say generally an average year for quality birds. Hopefully more excitement in 2013.
