Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Just a quick post to wish the followers of my blog a Merry Xmas and a Happy 2012. My plans for next year have already started to take shape, Corsica is now booked, and I can’t wait to get the 2012 herping season under way. I spent Boxing day on the East coast on an RSPB reserve watching Marsh harriers (Circus aeruginosus), once a very rare sight in the UK, these impressive raptors are now making a remarkable come back. Other nice sightings today included Hen harrier, and a Barn owl. In around two months birds will take a back seat once more when the amphibians and reptiles begin to surface 🙂

Some Marsh harrier photos from today, all taken at quite a distance away:

  1. Very cool pictures! I just came across your blog and from what I have seen I will be sticking around and keeping up to date. I actually just started a reptile blog myself. Still in the building process though. Keep up the good work!
