So far so good on the first comparative list of the year! Very close at the top. I’ve since added seven more species in a single trip in Feb, so the records and lists won’t be changing much but at least the species list is growing. A nice walk with the girls on 15th Feb saw Buzzard, Coot, Kestrel. Linnet, Shelduck, Skylark and Sparrowhawk added. As for my Hayle patch, it’s more of what Ive missed as what I’ve seen. The Gulls are still eluding me, with RB Gull, Iceland (Kumlien’s), Glaucous and Caspian all present over the past two weeks and so far I haven’t managed to see any of them!
