WELCOME

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.

BULLFINCHES AND BUTTERFLIES AT BOOKHAM

Annie and I went for a pleasant walk around Bookham and Little Bookham Commons this afternoon. Always a good place for birds, particularly Little Bookham. While the Nightingales have shut up shop, there's still plenty to see. Over a two hour saunter, we spotted a pair of Goldcrests with their young, as well as numerous Goldfinch and a couple of Buzzards soaring high up.



Best of all, though, were a pair of Bullfinches, the first I have seen in a few months, plus a couple of chirpy Marsh Tits. I didn't get a photo of either, but did manage some nice shots of a Silver-Washed Fritillary butterfly, of which there are many at Bookham at this time of year,
