Pastures new.

Following 22 years of living in a 3 bedroomed house, my wife and I have taken the plunge and decided to downsize to our new home, a 2 bedroomed bungalow about 400 yards from our previous home.
Over the previous 22 years I have gathered a very impressive list of bird species from and in our garden, it is my intention to present these in a future post.
Our new garden has much potential for encouraging birds and this coming autumn I will be looking at creating a small hedgerow comprising a mix of native species, Hawthorn, Elder, Blackthorn, Dog Rose, and Bramble.
I have plenty of sky to watch from the garden ranging from the west to the north-east, this will help with visible migration in autumn, most notably Thrushes and Finches.
I will finish this small entry by thanking all of my followers of the blog and I look forward to sharing my forthcoming birding experiences with you all.


  1. From comments on previous posts, I thought you must be on the move!
    But after a month I, for one was beginning to get a trifle worried...
    thought you might have fallen in a pingo!
    Look forward to hearing your new news....

    1. Hi Tim, great to get your lovely post. Since then, I had further problems with the internet, however, this now appears resolved. Looking forward to maintaining contact with you in future...thank you Tim.
