My 2017 got off to a flying start - 68 species. The Great White Egret is still knocking about along with several Little Egrets dotted across the area. I will gather notes and write something soon.
For now though, just a note to say how good it is to see the Chestnut Horse pub in Kelk is back open again after a short spell in darkness. When you hear about the number of pubs, especially rural ones, that have closed over the years, you fear for the worst.
A proper country local. The new owners are still finding their feet but on Saturday the beer was good as was the food. I wish them the best of luck.
