We all get hit with an unexpected dose of life happens at one time or another. Expensive things may break and we may lose friends or family but that's life. I've had my own run of that recently, putting a hold on my usual birding routine.
I was able to get out for a quick bit of birding and was able to find my first Middlesex Saltmarsh Sparrows of the year thanks to those who contribute their findings on eBird.
Watching a baby Osprey getting its morning feeding was a pleasant reminder that life does go on.
