2011 has started well. Two amazing weeks in Costa Rica and a bit of time catching up with friends and family. We've only seen 118 bird sp. so far but we have bumped into things like Black-necked, Little and Great Crested GrebeBittern, Green-winged Teal, Ring-necked Duck, Smew, Red GrouseBlack Grouse, Avocet, Ruff, Iceland Gull, Water Pipit, Dipper, Marsh Tit, Willow Tit, WaxwingTree Sparrow and Twite, all of which are less than annual or absent from the Bardsey List.

So all this talk of Costa Rica has been a bit of a distraction really as we wait to return to Bardsey. But the weather is changing and Monday is looking good for a crossing. The next two days will be for packing and a pretty major food shop. And then the season begins. Hopefully we'll be blogging most days and if it all goes quiet then there's always more Costa Rica photos to sort through...

Hope it's this flat on Monday, it's always nice to arrive with dry pants (c) Richard Brown
