Football at last

Happy New Year Everyone.
Its been a good start to the Year so far.I haven't been out birding yet but i have seen some interesting birds today.First of all,while waiting to go to football at lunchtime i had a lovely Male Blackcap in the Apple tree where the 6 Waxwings were Xmas eve.Then on our way to football on the M25 around potters Bar i had a lovely Common Buzzard perched in the tree set back from the road.I also had Kestrel along the motorway and a few other birds as well to get my year list underway at 23.
As for the Football,AFC Hornchurch travelled to Wealdstone,a place we never do too well at.We totally outclassed them in front of a crowd of 506 (around 80 from Hornchurch).We went in 2-0 up at half time and were in total control.They really were outclassing Wealdstone,the 3rd was added by Young Michael Ramkin on his first appearance since a very serious injury over a year ago,welcome back Michael.
I then got home around 6.30 to watch the end of Arsenals 3-0 win away at Birmingham,so thats both my teams who play in red and white,both playing against opposition in blue and white who are languishing down the bottom of the table and although wealdstone don't play in Birmingham,they do play in ruislip which is on the M40(A40) and is connected to Birmingham.Talking about the M40,i was hoping to maybe see a red kite or two in the air around the junction with the M25 but no such luck i am afraid.
Oh well,off out birding tomorrow,although i will probably just stay local and go over the Valley and get my Ingrebourne Valley Year list underway.Going to go out in a little while to see if i can get the local Tawny Owls,i heard two the other night,which i have never heard round here,usually just the one.
