A nice leisurely start to the New Year picking up the Great Northern Divers at Shustoke & Long-tailed Duck & female Scaup at Lea Marston before moving on to the outflow off Edison Rd,Hams Hall which is always good for wintering Chiffchaff!! 1st bird I lifted the bins to was a cracking Firecrest (a great start to the year) But with the camera left in the car I was cursing as it was so close in brilliant light!! A quick phone call to Tom Perrins who put the word out,with many New Years day listers arriving throughout the day even though it was particularly elusive most went home happy!! Only managed 1 photo after running back for the camera!!
