MY BIRDWATCHING HIGHLIGHTS FOR DECEMBER 2006
|A few final
words for December.
very quiet month – December over the years has been like that, the
lull before migration proper gets under way. Also the weather was poor
for much of the month so we did not stray far.
we contented ourselves with the now annual invasion of robins in our
lounge! This year 25 of them -
plus 3 french hens and just two turtle doves. Missing from the line up
this year were partridges. They could not perch in the pear tree as they
were on my plate for dinner and much enjoyed too! Hopefully you too had
a good festive season!
next month, good watching. Paul Smith.
