It was a great pleasure to participated in the Christmas Bird Count for the first time this year. I had heard about the Christmas Bird Count but honestly did not think I would see any interesting birds in the middle of winter.  I generally concentrate...

Early risers such as Sutton market merchants might have seen a group of six cold and wet birders roaming the streets of Sutton this morning.  We were a smiling group, peering into trees with interest, inching close to people's yards and trudging through schoolyards.  We...
