It is a tricky time. There is plenty to see from my window (phew). Some birds did a no show; Great Tit, Blue Tit, Blackbird, Robin and Wren. I could set up my scope in the bedroom and add to my garden sightings but it might be a little disconcerting for my neighbour ;-) .
I have managed to get outside but only very early and I head home early before the crowds build up. Challenging but important. It is amazing how many people stop to talk and it feels rude not to respond but I am trying not to get involved in long conversations. I am also not going to use the bird hides from now on. Finally I will not be reporting any rare birds to anyone!
Let us hope this will be over sooner than later.
Take care and Stay Safe!
