Friday January 6th
It's getting far too competitive with all this Egret counting. Steve Pick is on his second alarm clock in 12 months but after a sleepless night he wrestled the record count back after mere hours.
Warks: 61 (Sixty one) Little Egrets left the roost today. All but four went south, as usual. A Woodcock was seen over the carpark (Steven Pick).
A female and a drake Mandarin Duck were on the river today. Also two Chiffchaffs and a 50 strong finch flock in the copse (Ben Eaton).
