Logged in and around home a total of 80 Bird Species, particular highlights being Black Redstart, Brambling, Green Sandpiper, Siskin & Corn Bunting - all new sightings for me in the area.
In total for the year 124 Bird Species & 13 Mammal Species a lot of the additional bird numbers seen on April's trip to the Isle Of Mull and October's getaway to Cornwall. Definite highlights included - Bittern, Chough, Hen Harrier, Puffin, White-tailed Eagle, (All new sightings to me) Stonechat, & Wheatear. I am pretty sure these records would be a lot more extensive If I could identify Gulls and Warblers, Mice & Shrews.
I've Included some of my favorite shots from 2011, all taken with the new Canon EOS 550D and 250mm Lens, my first ever DSLR that I bought in March.
