Time for overseas travel...

Just finished my last (I think) guided birding trip for this year in C & E Europe. Winter is upon us, and the best birding months over. So, what now ? Well, more birding, but in warmer, exotic, climes...
Watch this space!

Ural Owl nest-boxes

The weekend involved a great trip with friends into the hills to put up nest boxes for Ural Owls. These owls are large and the boxes big and heavy, and they have to be placed high up, so it was tough at times. But the weather was kind and we managed. Here is one in place.
