New Years Day

I didn't make the best of starts to the New Year, mainly because I was with my family, but also because I was lazy and didn't get up early. I managed a 15 minute seawatch off Teignmouth which got me Red-throated Diver and two Great Northern Divers on the sea. About 20 Kittiwakes passed south but sadly weren't accompanied by the Pomarine Skua seen off the Warren earlier in the day.

Next I went to Coombe Cellars and where there was a Kingfisher in front of the pub and a Kestrel hunting the reed bed.

I finished off with a walk around Decoy where I saw most of the common species plus the Scaup.

A calling Tawny Owl made it on to the day list with five minutes to spare to give a total of 46 species.
