A Welcome Return

Well that's 2010 over with, here's to 2011. A jam packed Christmas with lots of entertaining and not a lot of anything else. The Marshalls' came for Christmas diner which was very nice and friends from Whalsay (James & Zoe) visited yesterday with their new daughter Esme in tow! Also yesterday was a welcome return to the ringing at Woolston, although the numbers were low we managed to get on with some much needed coppicing in preparation for the spring nets. 6 Brambling including a stunning adult male (6m) and 2 Coal Tit were the highlight of the morning session. 2 Potter traps were set also in the hope of a Water Rail but no joy, hopefully more luck over the upcoming weeks.
