Well for the 2nd week running we found ourselves back on the south coast, twitching (successfully this time!) the Hooded Merganser, which one of our crew needed, the rest of us had unexpectedly had the Chilham bird in Kent accepted.
We re-visited the Red-breasted Goose at Farlington, still looking as stunning as last week if slightly more distant.
Walpole Park, Gosport was the next stop for the regular wintering Ring-billed Gull, looking slightly dishevelled around the gape. Showed very well indeed and all it took was a loaf of bread.
A final stop was made at Thursleigh Common in Surrey but despite searching we could not find the wintering Great Grey Shrike.
