Last list for a while. Hands are getting worse.

Hey everyone, sorry not been updating the website with as much passion of late, my hands are really bad again and I’ve had to defer surgery due to needing to make money.  Too disabled to get a regular job, but not disabled enough to get disability payment, sadly no one will employ me and I’ve tried from Tesco to many computer companies and government jobs!  It’s got me down a lot of late and using my camera has now got so hard I have had to give that up…  I’ll also not be updating the bird count for a while, unless I see something very unusual, my hands have just got too sore and I have to only use them for my other websites at the moment.  I’m very very sorry!

  1. Blackbird x 2
  2. Blue Tit x 1
  3. Great Tit x 2
  4. House Sparrow x 2
  5. Woodpigeon x 1


Yesterday 3rd of February I only really noticed a rook at Hermiston Gait west Edinburgh and the flock of 60+ starlings at dusk last yesterday.

I’ll be back when I can.  Once again very sorry!
