Welcome to my blog. If you live in Surrey and birding is your obsession (to get out of bed at some ridiculously early time of the morning, no matter what the weather, to go and look at birds isn't normal behaviour, believe me) and you're still a bit of a novice (like me) then, hopefully, this blog is for you.

After a fruitless visit to Ranmore Common in search for Marsh Tit - the only birds of interest were a Buzzard, Kestrel and a solitary Goldcrest - I paid a visit to Norbury Park, which is just a few miles further north.

My visit paid off, as within minutes of arriving on a walk along the River Mole a flash of flourescent blue shot by, flying low downstream. My first Kingfisher of the year (133) - I only saw it for a few seconds, but it's good to know they are present here.

Later I went to Headley Heath, which appears to be a stronghold for Willow Warbler. I heard at least ten on a brief visit.
