This morning was my first transect walk of the woods for the red squirrel survey. And I saw... one blue tit, and that was all. There was nothing there moving around at all, although there was quite a bit of birdsong. I had the eerie feeling of being in a Kit-Kat advert, the one with the rollerskating panda.
I'll be doing it a few more times over the next week, and I hope I see some squirrels - something to make it seem less like a waste of time.
I was also at the Loch of the Lowes this morning to help out at the visitor centre. It was also very quiet, only a few garden birds were around at the feeders, and there were only ducks on the loch. Not surprised as there was still ice on the loch as well.
And my podcast is up. The next one is scheduled for the 31st March 2011. Not exactly sure what I'll talk about. I lean towards magnetospheres.
