Not remotely in the mood for this year yet and the dull days do nothing to promote a feeling of well being. A bit of late sun yesterday was welcome giving a glowing sunset made better by three Whooper Swans overhead going north. Nice to get them ticked early on as the list has also started a bit slow. To date
Black headed Gull
Long tailed Tit
Great Spotted Woodpecker
That's 41 so far with last years tally of 109 to beat. Also nice to see surviving Goldcrest and Treecreeper given the cold weather which were travelling with a marauding tit flock. Reports of a big bird gave me reason to spend a couple of hours freezing my butt late yesterday but without avail.
