December 31st 2009

First port of call this morning was Calcutt with the 2 Barn Owl showing then on to Napton Reservoir where there was another Barn Owl plus Water Rail, Cetties Warbler and Great-spotted Woodpecker.
Back home at mid-day 7 Siskin flew over the garden but no sign of Brambling then it was out with Mark but two heavy sleet showers put paid to our attempt at the roost at Draycote Water and all we managed was one Great-northern Diver, distant male Smew, adult Yellow-legged Gull and 11 Goosander. I started the year with Barn Owl so it was fitting that the last bird of the year was Barn Owl down the Southam Road hunting just before dusk.
