Well I think I am going to give this blog writing another bash. I would like to be able to look back at old blog entries in years to come and remember each birding outing in as much detail as possible.
Admittedly I have not been out birding for a long time. At least a good 3 months and that was to go see the non-existent Starling roost at Carlisle. However, I have seen many birds during my lapse in blogging and one bird has spurred me on to blog once again.
I went up to the one and only Miles residence on Thursday 5th May and when I met him at Brampton golf course he said he had a surprise for me. I was excited to see what this 'surprise' was and with him being back from Mull I thought perhaps he had found a Golden Eagle feather or something along them lines. The surprise was better. We pulled up just before his house and he pointed out of his car, I looked and didn't have a clue what he was pointed out. Out we got and this is the bad boy of a bird he named LEO!!!!!!!
LEO, What a beauty.
So I will end this blog post like that. I will soon update about a great trip to Leighton Moss and some immense Lightning Storms
