As not promised, but nonetheless materialised.
The other patch tick that came about this week was when the sea was quite flat earlier in the week and two Mute Swans went floating by. On the sea. Not usual. The local Snow Buntings are now up to 40 (counted on the ground, not guessed) and there was a Peregrine knocking about at lunchtime yesterday too. There had been very little patch action of late, hopefully this is not a blip until spring as it is has recently been inhabiting the tedious end of the patch birding spectrum.
Patch list update, and now over fifty. No longer described as pitiful. Halfway to the ton.
Consider this a patch update.
