A week of year-ticks

A week sat at home with a knackered foot was pretty productive with a few patch year-ticks - 2 Song Thrush, 4 Fieldfare, ad Iceland Gull, 1 Sanderling, 7 Dunlin, 3 Guillemot, a Siskin and 2 Woodcocks were all the first for the year on the 14th. A Collared Dove was new in on the 17th along with a Common Tern and 2 Carrion Crows on the 18th.
Along with all this were a scattering of other migrants, including 6 Robins, a Dunnock and a few Redwings, plus a few Twite visiting the garden.
