Some of you may have caught the horrendous liability of a post I put up the other evening. Apologies if you did. I had, at the time consumed enough Chardonnay to stun a small manatee. Sadly it inflicted my mood and writings with an arrogance i never wish to repeat. Sorry. If you didnt catch it - you missed out on a laugh (at me). Not been birding much over the last few days - lots of uni and work, but did volunteer at Tophill. Ive tried to update the twitter feed reasonably regularly but as can be expected its more day to day stuff than birding (although birds are involved). For those of you that have signed up to Rarevine on Twitter (just follow Rarevine) thanks. You can join a growing grapevine of hopefully speedy news about rarebirds by following both rarevine and the people rarevine is following (not all the followers as some are not solely concerned with rare birds and spam will hit your feed). If you want to contribute signup with a rarebird dedicated account and i can follow you also so that your information will hit my feed and indicate to other people to follow you - id like to see more contributions (it all sounds difficult but its not honest).
Volunteered at Tophill yesterday and cut down and lugged more trees. No sign of the Firecrest but 3 Roe Deer on the way in were nice as was a Barn Owl over South Marsh west. Might try and take some photos of the York Waxwings tomorrow but we shall see.
