Drake Tufted Ducks (Des McKenzie)
At last the copy I wrote for my next RSPB Birds Magazine piece was finally good enough to send off to the magazine editor. It will appear in April (Spring) edition.
I've been out of the local birding loop for some time now and I had every intention of heading out to The Scrubs in the morning to open my winter 2010 birding account. Alas, it is not to be because I am giving a talk on urban birding at a Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) conference in the morning over at Westminster.
The day has been billed as a Nature and Conservation Day and in case any of you fancied coming here are the details http://schmap.it/E5lsIE?a
