Saturday 3 February. Cookie and I braved poor weather at Widewater seeing the red-head Goosander and a Kingfisher. Nothing was seen on the Adur.

Friday 2 February. Megan, Cookie and I walked a circuit from Chantry Hill to Lee Farm and back seeing Red Kite, 5 Red-legged Partridges, a singing Mistle Thrush, 34 Ravens (easily my best count) and 16 Corn Buntings.
Wednesday 31 January. I went up to Staines Reservoir (my fiorst visit in years) and saw the Horned Lark, initially in pouring rain. Although the South Basin was quite calm 4 Goldeneye were the only birds of note I saw on it. Later an adult Mediterranean Gull was on the Adur and a North Thames Herring Gull flew off before it could be read.
