Sitting in the garden taking in a few rays enjoying a little bottle of red and totally out of the blue a pair of Mandarin ducks flew over the garden giving me another garden tick. That’s four this year and takes the total to a modest 65.

Just goes to show you never can tell with birding what the next day will bring and underlines why we’re always birding.

Not the ones that flew over but added for a bit of colour.

Essex Birder using the blog as a diary of my trips around the country chasing birds. Enjoying the places it takes me and the people I meet along the way. Great to spend time with my Dad and brother as we chase our year lists and grow our life list in the process.
