Quite predictably, birding in 2020 was considerably yet necessarily inhibited. Which is not to say that there wasn’t a lot of interesting birds in the UK – there most definitely was. They just managed to get a little more peace and quiet in 2020. Which, let’s be honest, they probably benefitted from hugely! Despite what few outings I made last year, in winter and early spring some early migrants made up for lost time. Here in limited number is a small collection of photos that I managed to capture (mostly) before the first UK lockdown in March.
