Velvet Scoter (1st-winter drake)
When I was first introduced to birds by my dad in the early years of childhood and many people who read this now won't believe what I am about to say..but I used to say birdwatching was boring! I must have been crazy when I said that as over the years, birding has become more and more of one life's daily essentials. It is necessary in every birder's life. If I couldn't go birding, my life would never be the same. Anyway, as the years have shot by from 2000, all the way to 2009, the birds have come thick and fast for me. I just thought I would share with you the best birds for me of 2009:-
Red-necked grebe, Balearic Shearwater, Sooty Shearwater, Great White Egret, White Stork.
