first since spring...

... that got me thinking and I just had a look at BTO ( http://blx1.bto.org/birdtrack/main/data-home.jsp - search for species on the graph!) and it looks like about now is when they are normally beginning to return.

We'll soon be seeing more then

Nice to know they're on track. It's been such a strange year - so far I've only seen one Red Admiral for instance - that they might be excused for messing up their calendars ;-).

I looked at your Flickr collection, and one bird stumped me for a while - the one titled "Breakfast Time". American Robin? I could well be wrong there though.

Your interests seem as eclectic as mine!

What camera and lenses do you use? If you prefer you can email me on

Flickr, lenses etc.

Just sent you an email.

Have to confess the American Robin was a photo of my brothers (who lives in the States) which I put on when I first signed up to Flickr - forgot it was there actually! 'though I'm sure I credited him?
