Can't do much else but its the way i like it, no pressure to twitch others birds, lets find me own. The list is steadily climbing but nothing hugely special that i haven't already blogged about.7th Jan Nipped to the patch tonight and the Hollesley rspb screen. Highlights being 12 Bean Geese, 130 Whitefronts, 1 Adult Caspian Gull and a cracking Barn Owl.
A Diver flew in from the North, very slow wing beat and looking large, i was sure it was a Great Northern diver just from the Jizz alone. It then very kindly flew and landed on the sea just off the river mouth confirming my initial I'd. A Drake eider went North. 100 whitefronts, 6 barnacle 1 juv and Brent on patch. A Turnstone on scrape and a Marsh Harrier showed well. Peregrine in its usual tree.
Highlights at a very wet Hollesley rspb were 5 Dunlin, 1 Ringed Plover, 5 Common Snipe. Marsh Harrier Usual ducks. 2 fox and a Muntjack together. All the wild Geese seem to have moved on now. 56 sp in total
At least 3 Singing or calling Firecrest, The Great White Egret and Hooded Merganser still, link to the blog post on why its not the released bird here. Marsh Tit a few Lesser Redpoll and a shed load of Siskin. Fieldfare and Redwings in the woods.
