We spent a very pleasant and unseasonally mild New Years Eve in our motorhome at Weybread.
Finishing the year in the last hour of light I went on a wander around Bottle Pit and found 2 Chiffchaffs (colybita birds) flycatching from a hedge in the last rays of sun. These were my first local wintering birds. Also about were a Great Spotted Woodpecker, Mistle Thrush, Common Buzzard, c150 Tufted Duck and c20 Great Crested Grebes on Ocean Pit. A Kingfisher whizzed past the sailing club calling at dusk and after dark the last bird of the year was a calling Tawny Owl.
