Busy week with few birds.

Wednesday, 18th January, 2012

It's been a busy week so far, with several meetings and a 2-day conference to run. The weather though has improved markedly and the fog of the last couple of months has at last been replaced by some sunshine. Shame the boys back in Nottingham can't bring their own rays of sunshine to the lives of all their supporters! A 3-0 'thumping win' (thank you BBC) for Southampton at the weekend and a 4-0 thrashing by Leicester in the FA Cup yesterday: shocking!

Looks like I might get a morning off though tomorow, so I'm planning to get away from the blues of footie and meetings and head off to the woods to see what's about. Definitely seen far more Indian Grey Hornbills lately (all singles mind you), and our local Indian Roller was back yesterday putting on a fine show on the wires outside the house. Noticed an increase in Barn Swallows too, with a reduction in Red-rumped. I haven't really worked out the seasons here yet, and nor, does it seem, have the birds.

Tune in tomorrow for more.
