Guted. A perfect gull roost tonight at Chasewater with Glaucous, Iceland, Caspian and Med Gull, superb. I am sitting at home absolutely knackered and in shock. Knackered as worked all day tree felling and in shock because Derby have managed to beat a lower division side to get into the fourth round for the first time in god knows how many years.
I am sure you will be shocked when I tell you that this time next year I will have passed a certain landmark regarding age, I will be celebrating my 22nd anniversary of being 18!!!!!!!!! I really would like to go somewhere special and different during my year of that age, indeed one party I am having is at the Cambridge folk festival in the summer. But one place I really would love to visit is Norway. I have been told to cut my teeth in Lesbos my more experinced birders and although I respect their knowledge I think the heat would be my downfall. Not here though. Check out Gullfest 2013 I have been reading about. Wow.
Dont worry though. A) there is no place for someone like me there, I would be way over my depth there and B) I can't afford to go there. Dreams.
I wonder if there is any decent birding in Blackpool??????????
