Wednesday 30th November
So the end of another month, number 23 on the Biking Birder tour and the beginning of day 700! With 6.500 miles cycled this year so far I am going to enjoy another day off and explore York. I have only had one new bird for the year list this month; the white-billed diver off North Ronaldsay. There is another bird available about fifty miles away, pallid harrier near Spurn and that will be the direction I take tomorrow. York Minster and the Jorvik museum, I haven't been to them since the children were small.
Now there has been a lack of birds in my life recently. Winter thrushes occasionally whilst cycling and a few treecreepers from the window of the youth hostel dormitory yesterday isn't a large amount of birds but needs must. I need to get the distance covered.
When cycling one of my strategies to keep the negative voice at bay is to consider a route to bird when I return to Peru in April next year. >>>>>>
Let's dream together ….............
Lima, San Isidro Park and the pier at Miraflores
and the ubiquitous rufous-collared sparrow
A ride down to Los Pantanos de Villa
Multi-coloured rush tyrant
Think I will dream of The Paracas and Ballestros Islands later!
Have a wonderful day, wherever you are – and please remember only 31 donating days until I finish! Thanks.
