4/4 Plenty of Cormorant roosting on the lighthouse and I particularly like the two Stonechat images. Not prize winners but I like them.

3/4 Plenty of seals hauled out as well, at least 70 on the beach with more in the water. My peak count here has been in excess of 140. The Raven was heard kronking most of the walk, very active.

2/4 There was utter outrage when Trinity House announced they were pulling down the redundant lighthouse, so much so the plans were scrapped. Roosting Oystercatchers, Ringed Plovers, Purple Sandpipers and Turnstones were nice

1/4 Yesterday in what was probably the first nice day in Cornwall this year weather wise saw me walk a circular route from Hells Mouth to Godrevy. Magnificent scenery and some nice birds as well.

A bit too distant for my camera but interesting to watch two magpies teasing a fox snoozing in the sunshine on the bank at the far side of my garden this morning. Eventually he wandered off - not really bothered!

This bare rose bush yesterday provided an excellent food source with 9 Blue Tits, 11 Long-tailed Tits and a Goldcrest using it for picking insects. I think the number of Blue Tits and Long-tailed Tits are garden records for my Weekly survey

A very positive week. Some excellent telephone conversations with BTO volunteers, 2 new species added to my Penryn square via casual records at work, possibly about to start work with FWAG in Cornwall as well as part of Pilot Group.

If you live near water or farmland, look out for Reed Buntings in your garden during the late winter and early spring. They tend to visit gardens when the seeds that they usually feed on in the countryside become scarce. Find out more about them here:

Marvellous - in the time I've been at work it's sold out. Four Cornish artists in the mix as well. Gutted....

My Artwork featured in the showcasing the beautiful and iconic Herring Gull that gets a bombardment of careless bad press every single year during their breeding season. There are a lot of people who have close bonds with these birds!

It is worth looking and listening out for Great Spotted Woodpeckers in your garden and local area at the moment. Although it is quite early in the year, they are already drumming in some places. Thanks to Terry Hancock for sharing this image with us. Info:

I was so excited to see the proof of mine and 's pages last month and I am loving that the release is in the midst of winter when we all need something beautiful and full of hope to look at. Can't wait!

Birding Beijing 北京观鸟 Jan 14
Little Grebe (小鸊鷉, Xiǎo pì tī) is a hardy species.. many endure the Beijing winter in the few remaining patches of open water.
