Saturday 31st December
Not much new to report. The Short Eared owls showed briefly above the hedge at the northern edge of Greenaways and there was a drake Gadwall on the lagoon, the first I have seen for some time. A flock of at least two hundred Golden Plover were present and several parties of Lapwings. Kingfisher pleased many visitors to the hide and at least forty Goldfinches were behind the second screen along with many winter thrushes.
Tomorrow we start a new year list but I doubt if we can keep up with Farmoor for long but we will try.
