Just a quickie to mark the end of an era. Later this week I will no longer be a young birder in Aberdeenshire, as I move away and establish a new family base down in Glasgow. This marks the first of two ‘moves’ for me. In September I will be taking up my uni accomadation in Edinburgh, where I will be primarily based for the next four years. With that in mind, its time for a blog name change. I’ll get round to that when I can.
As to be expected during a move, things are too hectic for me to be able to update the blog properly for now. I have plenty to update, so when I have finally settled down elsewhere I will aim to get the following done over the summer:
- Updates on Costessey H.P.E and Norfolk birding
- Spanish Trip Report (will be slow progress…)
- Strathbeg volunteering in June 2013 account
- A post or two reflecting on birding in Aberdeenshire over the years
June 2013 was a great month for birding, holding a two week spell volunteering on the patch at Strathbeg, plus decent spells of patching down at Costessey. Late month, I was even jammy enough to be interrupted by a few odds and sods without wanting to be on a short, gloriously birding free trip to Holland and Belgium for a music festival and general visit. This included Ring-necked Parakeet in central Amsterdam, Woodlark in suitable habbo by the motorway towards Antwerp, Avocets on a pool near Schiphol, a couple of Marsh Harriers and shedloads of Egyptian Geese. Woops.
So, that’s the lowdown folks. When I get the time, probably later this month, I’ll try and get the above stuff done. In the mean time, enjoy the summer.
Thanks for reading,
