I'm off on a family holiday to the United States for a while now. So far it's been very quiet in the county this year but while I'm away I fully expect a huge influx of mega's to converge in and around Oxon and to flaunt themselves in a crippling manner for the duration of my absence.
Whilst away I will do my best to counteract this inevitable grip-off by doing some Stateside birding and I'll endeavour to bore my readers rigid with my holiday snaps on my return. As I won't be taking my scope these photos will be the usual distant bird blobs taken with my P&S camera but as I have never birded in the States before each blob will be a USA lifer for me.
Let the grip-fest begin!
