Cloudy morning

It was cloudy in more ways than one today, after all the excitement of the holiday I now have a cold which meant my planned Sunday morning stint ended as a brief foray and nothing more! I did again hear and see good numbers of Long Tailed Tits, a single Buzzard was the first for a while and Nuthatch, Bullfinch a couple Green Woodpeckers were all noted a few Fieldfares and Redwings were still in evidence but my senses were distinctly cloudy today. You'll be pleased to hear the holiday postings are nearly done!! I didn't say what the holiday was all about, basically it's a big birthday for my wife and we saved for ages to go somewhere different, she chose and what a good choice. I'll try the patch before work again tomorrow, hopefully with better results!!

Alan ,
Another great write up , really enjoyable .
Your wife certainly knows how to pick trips .
Classic shot of the Leopard , ours was almost identical .Great to get so close to the Cheetahs , ours were at distance but still memorable .
Look forward to the Ngorongoro Crater , that was my favourite place .
