Last post of 2013..........

..........and it's not very exciting either! First choice would have been the Point this morning for a seawatch, but I had to go and feed my Tree Sparrows. The weather was appalling this morning and there was no chance of a walk round. Driving on to the site the Green Sand was on the flood and as I was trying to get some shots of it when a car drove up behind me and I had to move on. It's a single track private lane and there is nowhere to pull over.

I walked down to the feeding station with my bucket of seed, apples and peanuts and there were 162 Tree Sparrows and 17 Chaffinches..

It's forecast for strong southeasterly winds for us tomorrow with rain moving in by 0900. As it will be the start of the New Year I'll make the effort to get out and have a bit of a sea watch.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best for 2014 and let's hope it's a great year for wildlife!

The first visit of the year does look to be a wet one though :-(
