Winter wish list.

Birds I would like to catch up with this winter.
1) Whoopers and Bewicks at Welney would be loveeeely
2) A Wash wader spectacular something I still have never done but would love to.
3) Winter Finch ringing. Lets hope for another winter filled with Brambling and Redpoll!

They way things are going I won't be back home to go and do these things til middle of December so a little wait to come. Also need to get down to Portland Bill or Christchurch Harbour to explore the local avifauna soon.

Oh and not forgetting Waxwings. I would definitley like to see another few of them this winter.

Its now heading upto 2 months without ringing and its not a good thing!!! C permit now good and on its way so hopefully soon I'll be all ready to get some garden ringing done at the new house (which I have yet to visit, the family have moved since I've been at Uni but it looks promising!) Can't wait til I get get my hands on some more winter finches! Saying that I would settle for anything even a bitey blue tit.
