A quick update, not that there is much to update ! A Whooper Swan was added to the garden list on the 9th. The local Eider flock is increasing daily with today's count being 200+, hopefully it will linger and attract a king. 7 Long-tailed Ducks are off the Houb and a female Common Scoter was logged yesterday as was a Chiffchaff. 3 Robins seems to be the maximum count around Brough and a new patch tick was gained today with a juv Moorhen in the 'crake' ditch below the house. On a slightly depressing note (well for me anyhow), i received a text informing me that my 400BOU was premature ? He kindly informed me (bloody sleuth) that i had Ross's Goose stuck on my life list so its -1. Bollocks.
