2013 was a good year for whinners. Andy Murray won Wimbledon, and Chris Froome won his first Tour de France (although we all know he could have beaten Wiggins in 2012). It was also the last time we recorded whinchat on our patch. A mega, partly due to the non coastal location, this species used to breed on the patch in the days when we released our first album. But no more. However, we were delighted to find a juvenile on patch on Sunday. That, plus fillers, brings us to 71 species, or 91.42%. Hopefully our career will return soon too.
