Happy New Year..

Happy New Year and all that...

Here are a few things I've been getting up to in the last couple of months, which really isn't a lot thanks to exams!

Some wonderful views of the female Smew were had today at Killingworth Lake, by far my best views of the species to date:


Winter wouldn't be complete without a shameful Waxwing twitch, and this year was no different, just before new year, I went for the Blyth birds, which showed (as ever) very well:


And finally, I now have access to Howdon Wetlands thanks to Colin B, so a twitch was very necessary to this newly-accessible site for one of my favourite ducks, the Green-winged Teal. It showed wonderfully, and again, the best views of this species to date. Just managed some digiscoped shots from the hide, that place has potential!

  1. I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at

  2. Nice post! Its really interesting. The ideas were good and helpful to us.
