So the last two weekend's of January were mainly spent in a shed overlooking D Res at Tophill Low, East Yorkshire.
Plenty of gulls on each occasion, but no big white-winged delights for me. However, they are still appearing. For all the latest Tophill Low records click here.
I finally managed to catch up with the Cattle Egret a week after it first appeared in the Tophill recording area. Certainly attracting a few folk to see it, including Steve Routledge. Click here for Steve's stunning photos... check out the dragons, and his blog here
Bit quiet on the fungi front despite the mild winter, but the Scarlet Elf Cups are starting to carpet the woodland floor.
