Twitchmeister's 2007

I was very lucky in 2007. I got the following 18 lifers:

Glossy Ibis, Whinchat and Marbled Duck at Frampton; Slavonian Grebe, Eider, Brent Goose, Hen Harrier, Jack Snipe, Woodcock, Red-breasted Merganser, Knot and Grey Plover at Whiteford; Osprey and Wood Warbler at Porthmadog; Spotted Sandpiper, Roller, Ring-necked Duck and Pacific Diver. Even if the Pacific Diver wasn't one I'll still get a tick 'cos I haven't seen a Black-throated Diver! It was a really exciting day out with Wayne and Dad anyway. I did better than Dad and only dipped on the Common Rosefinch.

In 2008 I would like to see a Barn Owl, Cattle Egret, Kentish Plover (I'd like to see one of them too!! - Dad), Merlin, Hobby and Storm Petrel.

I think it's really mean that you're not taking me on the Scottish Trip. But, I will come with you when I'm in Year 6!!

Hope to see plenty of you in 2008

Gethin, hasn't your dad taken you owling down Mardy Road yet? You will need to get up early in the morning though. A little dicky bird told me you enjoy a lie-in on the weekends.

Thanks for not gripping me off about the roller too!
