On your marks, get set.....

So here we go again, new day, new year. With a grey, drizzley start to the year I ventured out only to walk the dog, remembering to note every sound and sight to get things started. Trying to predict what may turn up in the coming year is usually birding suicide but I think around March- April we might have a chance of Great grey Shrike, a returning bird after a really good arrival last autumn and good numbers around the country this winter. With Little Egret and Spoonbill already secured, an early May morning with a Cattle or Great White Egret moving west over the fields is almost tangible in my eyes! Ofcourse everything will depend upon the weather, but some warm south easterlies in April will do wonders for raptor expectancy! Felbrigg will get better coverage this year, a Cetti's Warbler in the reed bed could be on the cards, Penduline Tit a complete long shot! But whatever it brings...Bring it on!
