We had a pair of good binoculars for Christmas and were delighted yesterday to be able to see clearly a flock of 10+ curlew two fields away. They were having a good time in the winter wheat fields. I see there is a big bird count at the end of January - which we must do.

Been adding to my 50 things to do in 2016.
7. Read four 19th century classic literatures - Thackeray, Dickens, Elliot, Wilkie Collins. No Russian stuff the unit in my degree killed any desire for Russian classics!
8. Paint an A4 canvas - I keep sketching and playing around but have a mental block on going the whole way on a picture.
9. Ride the local bus all the way to the last stop - an hour away in Spalding! For free!
