Birding Diary of an Exiled Liverpudlian and his West Hartford Wanderings
Saturday, 26 December 2009
Merry Christmas, Folks! Yesterday, 24 species on my usual walk, today 23. Largely the same list, the only difference was a flock of 80 Fieldfare just now, but very few of these 24 hours ago. Two Grey Partridge too, and a possible Lap Bunting over. I spent some time yesterday here, trying to learn the call that got Newton Stringer so ornithologically orgasmic, but the bird was high so I guess I'll never know. It was last seen flying south over the sub-station (there's a challenge for the Three Wise Men - find that Bunt!).
