Ok, this may be a great tit / bluetit, but I did see one, honest!

1st January 2013 The wintry trees were buzzing with birdlife at Askham Bog, despite the freezing weather, and thanks to my companion I was able to spot these for the first time. Rareish, apparently, though probably less so with these floods.

Marks: 5/10 – points lost for the fact that a crowd of people appeared with binoculars which made most of the birds fly off, and for the fact that when I got back I had to go on google to remind myself what they looked like.

I turned 50 in June and have decided to write about some of the new experiences that happen to me over the next 12 months, not in a show-off way, but to remind myself (and any others that access this) that new experiences happen in all shapes and sizes. I suppose I'm looking at ways to remind myself of the positives. I'm also hoping this will spark off taking steps in a few different directions - what, I don't yet know.
