See Quicksilver...



A nice day today after the stormy weather overnight. The wind had dropped and the sun was out.

A couple of walks around Seaton Point with Bunty today had 1 Red throated Diver on the sea, 2 Red breasted Mergansers S, 44 Sanderlings with other waders on the shore, 5 and 8 Grey Partridges and 2 Goldcrests were near the golfcourse.

And thats about it really. Barn Owls have been much in evidence this last week or two on my drives to and from work. 3 individuals at Lesbury, Warkworth and Radcliffe have brightened the journeys...



I almost forgot...Andrew at Quicksilver ( link on the right) has come up with a challenge. A Bird Blog Race. Count all bird species ( or wildlife of any sort) between and including Christmas Day and New Years Day and then post your totals and report on your own blog on 3rd / 4th January. Leave Andrew a comment on his blog if you are willing to have a go. There's nothing heavy here, just count what you see on your travels wherever you may be... Oh and no prizes for the winner!

I'm up for it...
