Just Like Huny
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EgB__YratE   A family trip out to Sunny Hunny for the kids birthdays had a little more avian interest than I might have expected.  I spent quite some time searching out the Med Gulls that should have bee there but weren't.  ...

Scarborough Fayre
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_faxjRKqJ4   A potter over to the coast from York via some Goshawk woods where one bird cruised across the misty treetops and settled in a conifer crown before disappearing in the murk.  In Scarborough harbour a couple of Bl...

Pretty In Pink
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqmTMiIMG74   A few days in York with the folks/grandfolks enabled some very good birding.  Monday morning dawned bright after a very grey and drizzly weekend and there had been no sight of the Pine Bunting at Dunnington I ra...

Night Owl
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4p0MaeSjJs       Not one of my photo's I'm afraid but I was in the car as the picture was being taken by Simon Patient on our Arctic epic some years ago.  I was deluding myself that I may be able to see Short-eared Owl like ...

Bohemian Rhapsody
Making my way to look for Waxwings I found Waxwings, although the flock of 20 or so just outside of Wetherby moved as quickly as they arrived.  A slightly more confiding bunch of 25 in Burley in Wharfedale were exceptionally flighty but were in great light....

Wishing I Was Skinny
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49bcBvSdWYU      After it had held out for a month or so I'd been wishing that the Eastern Black Redstart would hang out at Skinningrove on the Cleveland coast long enough to be incorporated into the increasingly traditional...

One Day Like This a Year Would See Me Right
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3X-xTEJn4ks   Well it was dark when I even contemplated throwing the curtains wide this morning, I picked Ben up at 6am and we took ourselves off to the coast for the morning.  Through the gloaming we walked out on to the mar...
