My Year So Far

Some highlights of my year so far. One of the first outings of the year was a Sussex Ornithological Society (SOS) birdwatching walk at East Head and Snow Hill Marsh, West Wittering, led by Bernie Forbes. A freezing start with thick frost on the sand but we were soon warmed up by wonderful views of Golden Plover and ice-skating Water Rail.
More Ice-skating at Arundel Wildfowl and Wetlands Center (WWT)
The 25th of January was the day of the SOS Annual Conference. A good opportunity for a get-together and listen to some wonderful speakers. This year that list included BBC presenter, Mike Dilger.

We had SNOW!!

The above is one of two pictures published in the Midhurst and Petworth Observer

With a foot to snow still on the ground in Surrey we visited Wisley RHS Gardens to see the strange sight of tropical butterflies and orchids in the glass house whilst the snow lay thickly beyond the windows.
