Snowy Owl to Visit Clonakilty??!!

At every available opportunity Seppy reminds me that I am not eligible to win the Golden Mallard this year. While I am reluctantly coming to terms with this reality I began to think to myself, whats in it for me in 2016? Then while browsing through old posts the Snowy Owl caught my eye. I want it!

Given the crap that has won it in recent years ( Western Bonneli's Warbler and Black Headed Bunting), I am very confident I can win it. Also I am awesome at cnavassing for votes and bribery.

The question I eligible for this prize in 2016?

slow trickle

back in Singapore

It has been a long four months or so on the road. Much of this has been 'at work' on board a small expedition ship in the Antarctic Peninsula, with precious little internet access but that does not seem to matter much since there was not much to update. After work  came a short break in Sri Lanka (great birding) and now I am back in Singapore for the next couple of months. 

And back on the patch...
