It was great to hear a couple of Great Tits belting out their song at home this morning - more harbingers of Spring. No doubt an Arctic blast will silence them before too long - we've hardly even had a frost so far this winter ;-)

A late flying visit to Pwllheli presented the chance to give the harbour a quick scan. A drake Shoveler was a surprise - my first here for a very long time. Twelve Wigeon, 77 Dunlin, two Bar-tailed Godwit, an adult Med Gull and a Water Rail were also noted.


  1. Yep, you can't beat a couple of great tits !

  2. Oh dear, typical Stringer - lowering the tone again ;-)

    I was genuinely thrilled to hear them singing away - had a Mistle Thrush doing the same this morning. Very nice!

  3. Oh err, this is all becoming a bit 'Carry on Birding' Mr Stringer!
