2016 came and went, and as far as birdwatching goes I wasn't exacly sure. I remembered the annual trip to Lauwersmeer to see my favorite waders but that's in the Netherlands so did not qualify for these pages. The spring migration went in a flash, then autumn migration went by without any notice. I became a lazy birder.
I did took out the gear for a bit of warm up in the backyard and a few spots near the house.
