New Year Opener 1/1/17

The usual start to a year trying to see everything one would expect. The day was reasonably good though inevitably species were missed. A slight change of plan late on new years eve as my car suffered a flat tyre meant I was to drive Paula's tiny car, much to its, and probably her disgust. Still, we spent the day together meaning she could keep an eye on me driving her car around the county. I ended the day with a respectable 92 species, not bad considering the conditions.

Highlights for the day are:

Rose-coloured Starling - Crawley
Egyptian Goose - Petworth (no sign of the Goosander)
Scaup - Ivy Lake
Water Rail - Siddlesham Ferry feeding out in the open
Great Northern Diver - Selsey
Long-tailed Duck - Church Norton
Mandarin - Arundel
Bewick's Swan - Offham
Grey Partridge - The Burgh
Jack Snipe - Tide Mills
Purple Sandpiper - Tide Mills
