First Blog of the Year (Local Areas)
First blog of the year sees me writing the same full of cold and inside at home on a sunny day, which is not great when your a restless sort of a person.
With lots of company at home for the Xmas and New Year period, getting out and about was a little problem, but a few wanders round Scarborough Open Air Theatre, The Mere, Seamer Tip Large Ponds and Cockmor Hall at Snainton on the first day back at work provided a good start and selection of birdlife from a variety of Geese, a Water Rail, a Kingfisher and lots of Tits and Finches along with Redwings and Fieldfare, all in all a good start to the year without seeing anything brilliant, but there's plenty of time for that to happen!!!
