Finished the patch year list for Hollesley and Boyton on 177 for 2021.
I was supposed to start my new job this week but i was asked to go in 2 weeks before Christmas as the my new employer got a large contract to sort. So i called time on my leave and went back to work so i only got a few days off between Christmas and new year and was even in work day after new year. Since then its been manic busy and birding has taken a back sea entirely especially due to the dark nights and working some Saturdays.
So since New year ive been out a handful of times and the patch has been quiet so only Highlight from Hollesley to Boyton have been a Canalag, White-front look alike, Ruff, 300 Avocet, 200 Black-tailed godwit, 1 Barwit and lots of Golden Plover on th move. Peregrine was in its usual tree but 2 Bearded tits were surprise. This was a my new year day list and a total of 71 birds.
15th January my first Whitefronts of the year 8 Barnacles and a 2nd Winter Yellow legged Gull.
A quick patch visit but lots of work has been going on clearing ditches so i wasnt surprised to not see much. Duck numbers re still good mind with 40+ Pintail a highlight.
Tomorrow i must get out further a field.
