It has been six weeks since my last blog - my apologies to those who have asked what I have been doing. The reason is that I have started a degree course in Countryside Management at Bishop Burton. I am really enjoying the course, but it does carry a large assignment workload and a sizeable reading list to go with it. On top of that I have a work placement with Richard at Tophill as well as my part-time work as a check-out dolly.
None of this means that I don't get out, and in the past few weeks I have seen plenty of Fieldfare, Redwings and continental Blackbirds. Other winter visitors have included 3 Waxwings on the approach road to Tophill, but so far none have come to the garden.
I will update my blog as often as I can, but given my college schedule that may be sporadic. In the mean time have a happy Christmas.
