These patch ticks are coming thick and fast. Relatively. Warm on the heels of the Hen Harrier and Gadwall comes today’s little cracker in the shape of Dabchick on the sea. Yes, I said Dabchick. Not a Litte Grebe, no. When I were a lad it was a Podiceps, and a Dabchick and I’m happy for it to stay that way. Here is the obligatory stunning image.
Later in the day, Redwings were heard overhead which is also a patch tick. I would produce a picture of Redwings flying overhead at night, represented by a black rectangle but I did that gag months ago.
I really should update the patch list page at some point this year.
