The Return Of The Light

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of my blog readers a 'Happy Solstice' and a wonderful New Year. From now on the nights get shorter and the light returns! I for one will be having a few beers this evening to celebrate.

In case you were wondering Tree Sparrow numbers didn't beat the 237 from the other day but were still at a respectable 208, with a supporting cast of five Yellowhammers and 21 Chaffinches. I didn't record anything else as the weather was atrocious with strong winds and near horizontal rain! The forecast doesn't look much better for tomorrow, but if there is an opportunity to get out I'll take it!

I trust you were celebrating by drinking some Orkney beer.

Hope you had a good Xmas and best wishes for 2014.

I was indeed drinking Orkney beer Dave! And it will be with some Orkney beer that I'll see the New Year in, unless I'm up early to go birding!

Best wishes to you for 2014 and hope to see you in January!
