|very poor photo of a superb bird|
2 January. A Peregrine on the Power Station chimney in the gloom on my way to work. Mistle Thrush singing in Stamner Park at lunchtime but otherwise a dearth of small birds.
1 January. Dreadful weather, Megan and I decided to visit Arundel WWT. The collection's highlights were, as usual, Blue Duck, Harlequin and Scaly-sided Merganser. Otherwise two Mandarin and a male Bullfinch were the only birds of note.
