I'm coming to the conclusion that every year is weird, and every year has a mix of good bits and not-so-good bits.
I'm not going to dwell on the NSG bits of 2022 - but in the good bits column I've got (i) taking yet another 365 Pictures of the Day, (ii) getting back to walking the Thames Path (I've walked almost 1700 miles this year), (iii) starting to get back to planning international travel (trains, not planes) and (iv) spending almost six months hanging out with the auks around Sumburgh Head on Shetland.
And from the 365 Pictures of the Day, I've picked 12 Pictures of the Month.
|January - Aberdeen Sunrise|
|February - Stoke Place Snowdrops|
|March - Lye Valley Frogs|
|April - Sumburgh Head Puffins|
|May - Nest Building at Sumburgh Head|
|June - Fishing Season at Sumburgh Head|
|July - Sumburgh Razorbills|
|August - End of Season Burrow Maintenance|
|September - Quendale Bay Sunset|
|October - Autumn Storms on Scat Ness|
|November - Crooklets Beach, Bude, Cornwall|
|December - Thames Barrier in the Sunshine|
And as for setting objectives for the 2023, lets just roll with it - there'll probably be a mix of good and NSG bits..
