well as hard as I tried, which lets face it wasn't very. I didn't manage to scrape the hoped for end of year patch ticks. Leaving me in rather disappointing 8th place and not a single half-decent bird for the year. Worse still Reg was obviously on duty last night and banged in a couple of late owls. However, the good news is that we've now started again and i can only do better, i hope.
