It is, so I am told, 2014. A new year. Frankly I don’t have any resolutions but I am toying with the idea of doing something BAD. Bird-a-Day. I shall probably lapse by tomorrow but I started the new year at Long Valley and my BAD offering for today is Siberian Rubythroat. And here he is:

Oh, and a happy new year to both my readers.

  1. Great start to a nice project, Andrew. I probably should have set some kind of goal for the year too…ah well, no goals, no resolutions. I’m a success. 🙂
    I hope you are able to stay the course, but it’s quite a challenge.

  2. Wonderful images of this bird Andrew. Whether you lapse in your resolution or not, I’m looking forward to your blog this year–whether I am able to comment properly or not, I always enjoy reading.

    I wish you the very best in 2014!

  3. A Bird A Day, keeps the doctor away ;-). Really wonderful photo’s, I like them all. Nice and sharp and of course the bird itself is great.
    Have a wonderful 2014!


  4. That’s a passel of birds, Andrew…. 365 and counting: A wealth to choose from :–) And, as Just Rod says, “… I always like to see the habitat.” From over here in the Ozark highlands, all the best to you and yours — and I so look forward to working with you in the Gregorian Year of 2014. –Eb

  5. I like your BAD intentions. Thanks for the happy new year greeting – who is the other one?
    Beautiful pictures, for some reason the second one amongst the dried grasses really appeals. I guess I always like to see the habitat. Good luck with keeping up with your own challenge.
    BAD is toddy’s GOOD. I hope 2014 is filled with good, BAD days.

  6. A beautiful resolution and amazing photos. Actually, for once on 1st Jan, it is good time to set intentions as it’s the New Moon in Capricorn, very powerful. Man-made time has passed and I heard that Big Sister instructed at the Thames fireworks – “at the third stroke, it will be… 2014!” Happy day! Drenched here.

    • Oh Dawn, I have seen the awful weather on TV. We need some rain for the garden but not too much. I always like Jan 1st to be cold and frosty, ideal for long walks. I hope 2014 is good to you.

  7. These are some stunning images of this rubythroat! Seriously amazing! The color and detail in the images is just incredible! Look forward to seeing much more of your work!

I'd be delighted to hear what you think
