|Polish Black-headed Gull TUXR on the River Adur, my third sighting of this bird this winter. It was ringed as an adult 60km NW Lodz in June 2016.|

|Polish Black-headed Gull T5PE at Harbour Way. My fourth sighting here or on the Adur since early December, it had been ringed as an adult at Koronowo, Kujawsko-Pomoroskie in May 2017 and I'd also seen it here in February 2019.|
|Mediterranean Gull at Harbour Way, always a nice bird to see around Shoreham|
Sunday 26 January. Megan and I took Cookie to Brooklands, having only returned from Myanmar at midnight it was about all I could manage. We saw 8 Teal, male Pochard, a Little Grebe and a Great Spotted Woodpecker. I wasn't expecting much more although disappointingly the rough field bordering the A259 had been cut and so was devoid of Stonechat and Reed Buntings.
|Pochard at Brooklands, about as exciting as it got|
