Gong xi fa cai

Chinese New Year is a pretty big deal here. It's now the year of the goat (or ram, something gets lost in translation). And it is a favourite time for firestarting, with some big firework displays. But ultimately I am confused about whether I should start my year list now?

The pitta is still on patch and now coming down to mealworms...otherwise the patch has been a little quiet with little egret and common sandpiper (first shorebird for me on the patch!) both counting the same as the pitta in the final calculation. Hmmm.

I have also been 'off patch' to successfully twitch blue-winged pitta and orange-headed thrush. Which was nice. But things will slow up from now for a couple of months as I have to go to work...
