Read Warbling

New year, new writing. For those who may want to pass a little time chewing on a few choice cuts of vicarious avian thrills, I've uploaded a series of recent articles over on the wordpress site.

All were recently published either in the printed media or via subscription-only websites, and so are reproduced here free of charge (with thanks to the publishers involved) via the following links.

Postcards from the edge: Autumn in Filey.
A series of three articles for Birdguides chronicling the ups and downs of a migration season spent in the field here at Filey Bird Observatory.

Brünnich’s Guillemot – a first for Yorkshire. A personal account for Birdwatch of stumbling upon an almost mythical Arctic wanderer swimming quietly by along the promenade here in December.

The Birds of Stoke Newington Reservoirs.
A fifteen-page paper freshly published in the latest and always excellent London Bird Report (for 2011). Available here via the London Natural History Society, and highly recommended. The above live link goes to my online avifauna of the site, upon which the paper is based.

In addition, there's more new stuff freshly published on the articles page.
