Inverness bound! 9th February,2012.
I suppose one of the downsides of completing a successful birding trip early in the calendar year is that it leaves few of the regular species you come across in your local area "unseen" and , therefore, some element of routine satisfaction is lost. On returning from East Anglia and Yorkshire I'd seen in excess of 160 species in January alone, but I still hadn't/haven't seen Meadow Pipit or Grey Wagtail, so some modest challenges remain. I'd plans to check odd places on my journey to Inverness except fog, rain and general grot turned the experience into a nightmare. Hopefully opportunities will arise to add on odd species during the time I'm up here , although are usually a bit limited.
