I've been very busy this, a hectic recording schedule (mostly abroad). So my visits to the wondrous patch have been few and far between, and definitely have nothing to do with the three year average rule. Languishing well under 100 species until last week, I've been on a bit of a bender and clocked five new ones in the last two weeks, including two full-fatters - Woodlark and Lapland Bunting contained no repetition whatsoever. So this takes me up to 102 for the year with the winter season to come. The recording schedule continues apace however, with panel game shows in Tenerife, Morocco and the UAE to come. Oh, and Glasgow.
