Being a new, avid bird watcher and an over-indulger during the holidays, it was a great way for me to spend my time, walking (lots of walking) and looking for birds. On the St. John's count my partner and I walked around 10.5 k. That's a good day's work. The walk yesterday was not nearly so long but was often over more difficult terrain. As luck would have it, both days were dry and warm for Newfoundland. This, good company and a mission made both days very enjoyable.
