Happy New Year - 2010 wow! I was working until midnight last night but luckily finished on time, before all the "hobbledehoys" got going!
Unlike some of my birding friends, I will not be doing a review of 2009. Time and dates do not really mean much too me - I just get older! I am sure 2010 will not be much different to previous years. I do not make resolutions - pointless task! However, I have decided to just let the year unfold and take what comes. If I see and/or photograph birds, great, if I do not, then so be it. I will make no effort to try and keep up with those with more time. My job is stressful enough - I want my hobby to be stress free, otherwise there will be no point in pursuing it.
My new birding year will not start until 4th January. Good luck to you all.
