Time flies by. Sorry. Our trip to the island was rounded off by a patchwork of ringing, abortive ringing, birding and walking - we headed over to a harrier roost to admire a handful of birds coming in to sleep, we spent time in a local garden ringing normal garden fare, we walked the Agniesh Valley to the old mine spoils (and boy, are the motorcyclists making a mess up there!) and we rounded it all off with a pleasant couple of hours at a brand-new wetland near Onchen and at Derbyhaven Bay. Brief, and to the point.
Brought up a birder, now more of a rounded naturalist (my interests, not my shape). Swapped the eastern fringe of Dartmoor for the northern fringe of Lake Constance... what will life in Germany bring?!
