Another early morning stroll around Bystock reserve, in frosty conditions, produced Dartford Warbler, Marsh Tit, Treecreeper, 2 Siskins and just one Lesser Redpoll amongst a few other bits and pieces.
Not a lot to report today but off Mudbank - drake and female Goldeneye, 11 Red-breasted Mergansers, 13 Great Crested Grebes, 35 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 16 Pintail, 10 Wigeon, 1 Greenshank, c3/400+ Dunlin and 70+ Mallard. Nearby the male Black Redstart was in the Shelly beach area.
I relocated yesterday's Dartford Warbler in a different part of the reserve this morning. A second individual was across the road on the edge of Withycombe Raleigh Common.
One of four Mistle Thrushes on the archery club playing fields. Three Redwing were also present.
