Year End 2022

My recording year ends for 2022, been an exciting year with numerous highlights. A couple of trips into Norfolk/Suffolk in May and September being a blessing to re-visit a few special sites, especially Titchwell and Minsmere.

A few bird highlights this year, started with a lifer in the form of the Baikal Teal, a pleasure to see the first breeding of Black winged Stilts in Yorkshire at Potteric Carr, the final highlight being the long staying Turkistan Shrike at Bempton Cliffs was also a lifer for me. I finished the year with a tally of 170 species.

Dragonflies took a while to kick off this year and I eventually got to find the Willow Emerald Damselflies, the first being at Snakeholme Pit and then more at Titchwell, these being lifers. Finishing the year on a tally of 17 in total

Butterflies, no new ones here but it was great to find Purple Hairstreaks at a couple of new sites, my work site (Nature on a Lunch Break) and my local wildlife ponds.

All remains is to wish you all a great 2023 with much wildlife watching and finding.

Thanks for supporting me on this site, I hope you all return to read about my wildlife adventures in 2023
