I didn't post much in the second half of last year simply because I didn't see much. In fact, I only added one species in the last four months of the year!
I gave it socks in the last two days and managed to see 68 species which I am quite happy about. Already I have seen Grey Wagtail and Shoveler, neither of which I saw last year. The Shoveler was floating about at sea with a big flock of Common Scoter which was quite bizarre.
Thankfully the Snow Buntings are still around as is the Ruff that has been around for while and the Long-tailed Ducks. I also had two Chiffchaffs yesterday.
Nothing else of note but a nice start, despite the howling gales today and the fact that I could not get to the beach as the road was flooded. That is the first time I have ever seen this.
P.S. I found a Woodcock's wing. Do I get half a point ????
68 species, 77 points, 52%.
