Blog now updated with my Exmouth & River exe wildlife cruise report this includes a LIFER species seen 54

Next trip with the Stourbridge Rspb group will be in February to Marshside Rspb and Martin Mere wwt

Hope to visit Wall heath later this week for the Hoopoe and Sandwell Valley for the Parakeets and Willow / Marsh tits

This years species list stands are 94 so far

Trying to get to 200 that won't be bad for a public transport birder.

Blog link below will not be adding this after this one

Hoping to do Sandwell Valley Rspb & Swan pool next week and next RSPB Stourbridge trip will be to Marshside RSPB then onto Martin Mere WWT.

Hoping to add Ring necked parakeet, Willow tit & Marsh tit to my yearly list at Sandwell Valley

Had my best ever count for the garden of Siskin today 11 birds in total at one time (5m 6f) but still no Redpoll for the garden tick.

Siskins still around numbers vary on a day to day basic but average around 4m & 7f But still no sign of any Redpoll this year in the garden.

Also missing so far this year from my garden are Treecreeper (haven't seen since early last year), Pheasant haven't even heard him calling this year yet, No Blackcap as yet or more surprising no Yellowhammers as yet.

Very quiet the last few days so will leave the garden updates until end of next week on the blog.

Also next week Sandwell valley Rspb (Tuesday), Marshside Rspb (Sunday) and Martin mere wwt (Sunday also)
