Year starts off well with sightings of Cranes & Bewick's Swan (pics below). Plus, my 100th sighting on 13 Feb - a juvenile Iceland Gull (1st pic below) wins a "Notable Picture Award" from Bird Guides (a main UK birding magazine/website).
Lockdown in force from March but nice to see the following from home or permitted daily exercise then up to May.
Pictures from June to July as Lockdown eases. Especially nice to see the Rosy Starling at Collingham, the Red Footed Falcon nr Church Fenton & the Bearded Vulture at Howden Moor.
My picture and account of the Sparrowhawk taking off with its Great Spotted Woodpecker prey makes the Readers Letters page of the Bird Watching Magazine
