BIG News!!!

I really have put a lot of time and effort into birding the patch this autumn (albeit with little reward!). This is the first autumn I've enjoyed for six years without the pressures of being County Recorder, but it's also been on my mind that I may be a little busy for the next few...

Yes, another pair of wellies and binoculars will be required in the Waite household, as I'm absolutely delighted to announce that Jess and I are expecting our first child. How exciting!!!!



Although Jess is only 13 weeks gone, I am already experiencing some pretty serious cravings...



The little one should be making an appearance mid May 2017.  Which still gives me a Waxwing-filled winter (hopefully!) and half a spring...
