Sunday 1st January 2017

Cold and overcast most of the day.
Not feeling so good with a cold it was a case of staying indoors and doing nout.
A good day then to reflect on 2016 and think about what's ahead in 2017.
Some good moments during 2016, red kite roosting in the silver birch tree, arrival of a green woodpecker and pied wagtail, swifts clinging to the box, arrival of three hedgehogs, pair of foxes finding love and a spat of a jay and Sparrowhawk on camera. All good stuff for my next garden wildlife book.
To 2017 and more of the same I hope. Started off well with a male and female pied wagtail photographed together.
Just three projects this year. A new fence replacing a fallen ivy hedge fence. The wildflower meadow and a formal lawn in the alpine house area of the garden.
Get over this cold and I will be on the go again.
