Happy New Year

Well I've made it..... welcome to 2009 and a Happy New Year to all of you out there, reading my Blogging snippets. I hope 2009 is a year of good fortune and health for you all.

NO No stop, you're embarrassing me, of course I don't look like George Clooney, it's just a trick of the light, honestly !!

And just to see out the old year, this Song Thrush took pride of place as the final bird I photographed in 2008, what a super bird in lovely condition.

Posting tomorrow to set up for the Bird Challenge, looking forward to hearing from you all. I'll leave you with this piece of news from the Independent on Tuesday..... I only hope they're not taking part on the Bird Challenge !!!!!!

Twitchers break world record of species spotted

From The Independent - 30/12/2008 (92 words)

BIRDING A British couple have broken the world record for spotting the most species of birds in a year. Alan Davies and Ruth Miller, from North Wales, sold their home in Llandudno to fund their birdwatching trip, which they called The Biggest Twitch. The couple say they have observed 4,327 different species during their year-long tour, which has taken in British back gardens, Asian rainforests and Arctic ice caps. The previous record was 3,662.


  1. ooooh, my heart did a little pitter, patter, I was certain I was looking at Gorgeous George. lol.

    What a great amount of birds those birders saw. I wouldn't see that many in a life time. Happy New Year, hope it's a great one for you.

  2. Do we call you George now then? Have a Happy 2009 with only slightly less than 4327 birds seen!BW Goosey
