Unable to resist one last go before New Year I headed down to Ynyslas last night with Jane and Roy. It's amazing just how few birds there are around in this mild weather compared to this time last year, at least it means they are finding things a bit easier going this winter. We struggled to find anything to start with but eventually managed to catch 1 Woodcock, 2 Lapwings, 5 Snipe, 1 Skylark and this stunning (and very co-operative) male Teal.
Could you just step on the scales for me a minute please?
2011 proved a cracking year in many respects, just hope 2012 can follow in it's footsteps! Have a good one!
