Today (31st) I will be a another year older but not sure I'm any the wiser! I can often recall images and events from ages ago with distinct clarity but according to someone who knows me very well I can't remember exactly what I said some hours ago .... that's life. Unlike modern technology I can't install a fresh set of up to date memory banks so will have to live with what I've got.
Attempting to think back and review what I may have achieved in the past 12 months I couldn't think of anything particularly significant; just one new bird added to my UK list but then I have taken a much more relaxed approach throughout 2010. More by luck than anything else, some of my photographic attempts have encouraged me to spend more time with specific species and hopefully this trend will continue and the output and quality will improve. Wildlife photography is certainly providing me with an interesting challenge as an accompaniment to both my wildlife watching activities and not least blogging what I see as I stroll around my favourite locations.
One thing I have noted is the increasing number of visitors and followers to my blog and my thanks go out to everyone who continues to drop by plus all those who continually leave encouraging comments thereby spurring me on to share my encounters in nature that might be of interest.
I will not be consciously wildlife watching today as we are visiting my parents and taking them out for a meal. I do have a few posts up my sleeve but in the meantime I'll leave you with a close up of a favourite winter goose .... the Brent.
Wishing everyone a glorious wildlife watching week, wherever you are. FAB.
