Fame most minor

Well, it looks like I'm famous at last. I'll try not to let it go to my head... because this crown is heavy enough already.

After doing the Five Weirs Walk on Sunday, I tweeted this:

Today it turned up in the Sheffield Star (p37) as Tweet of the day!

For some strange reason, they didn't include the follow up tweet:

My friend Katherine did all the bird spotting and she made a list. I'll try and get the list and post it here. 

It really is a great walk, you should try it!

The birds were...
  • dunnock
  • blue tit
  • great tit
  • crow
  • wood pigeon
  • black headed gull
  • lesser black backed gull
  • mallard
  • starling
  • moorhen
  • kingfisher
  • robin
  • blackbird
  • magpie
  • pied wagtail
  • grey wagtail
  • long tailed tit
  • wren
  • thrush
  • goldfinch
It turns out there were 20! Still no penguins though.
