I've decided this is going to change in 2012. For sure, my new business still has to have top priority and the football team too, especially as the girls just can't seem to stop winning, but a bit of effort and good time management should see me out and about and blogging a bit more often too.
To add an objective to help me along the way, I decided before Christmas that I would keep a bird list in 2012. I won't be turning into a twitcher overnight, but my competitive nature will no doubt drive me to see as many birds as practically possible in my spare time, which in turn should see a bit more photography and blogging too.
To help me along, I asked for and received the The Birdwatcher's Yearbook & Diary 2012 for Christmas.
So there, we are - my first blog post of 2012. I hope there will be many more to come this year, including a couple of catch-ups from last year on the Ospreys we saw back in May and the wonderful Kate Tempest who performed at Standon Calling last summer, which I of course attended as usual..... see, I told you I hadn't been chained to my desk all the time.
Best wishes everyone for a fantastic 2012 and let's hope we all get the time and opportunity to get out there and enjoy this wonderful planet of ours.
