Don't Forget My Birding News is Now on Twitter

Saturday, 20th December 2014

I am posting all of my birding news on Twitter now - over 500 posts so far.

I will keep this blog site up however and post here from time to time, linking from tweets when there's a 'lot' to say or look at.

Great Black-backed Gull - new post

Tuesday, July 1st 2014

New post uploaded on my Gulls and Terns blog today.

Occasional posts will continue.

Monday, 2nd June 2014

I have decided to continue with occasional posts on this blog now that we are back on patch birding on the East Weares, Portland. Some readers will know that I have had some great birds there recently and that the informal breeding bird survey continues for its third season. My new blog continues as sightings allow. Inneviatably it will be slow in the summer months.

The Last Post

Saturday, 12th April 2014

Dear all. This is the final post for 'birdingportlanduk' as I mentioned on my tweet last night. I would like to thank all the readers for their interest and support during the last couple of years. Some of you will know that I began this project to keep myself occupied in the evenings when my wife Catherine had to go into the nursing home. Despite a few ups and downs things have settled down are going very well for us both now. I have been very much aware that birdingportlanduk has strayed off topic quite a lot over the past twelve months and it has been increasingly hard to come up with anything different from the news and information that's routinely circulated elsewhere; hence I now plan to devote my time to gulls and terns which is my current field of ornithological interest. The new blog 'gullsandterns.blogspot' will therefore continue and hopefully thrive as a result. I will of course also carry on tweeting out local news.. and try hard to keep that on a birding theme too.

Take care, and great birding. Keith.
