A few bits from the last few days:
[Common] Chiffchaff, 1 at Potton STW on Saturday and again on Sunday. I tried my damnedest to bend it into a Dusky/ Hume's/ tristis.
Tawny Owl at The Lodge this morning, and shortly after, a zero-carbon Goosander at New Road, Sandy.
I can't recall the last year that I managed to year-tick Chiffchaff and Blackcap before Siskin and Lesser Redpoll, but that's what has happened this year.
Nine Tree Sparrows at Vicarage Farm, Potton, are the highlight of my year so far...last seen at this site seven weeks ago, when there were only three.
Good luck all. The February doldrums are just around the corner.
