A Yellow-legged Gull was a nice find on my patch at Staunton Harold Reservoir on 3rd Jan, along with an early Kingfisher. 4 Brambling and a drake Gadwall on 10th Jan, Treecreeper on 17th Jan, with Brambling increasing to 10. During my January WEBS count highlights were, 114 Great Crested Grebe, 111 Teal, 6 Little Egret, 215 Lapwing, 18 Gadwall, 144 Tufted Duck and a Water Rail of all things, the first since 2009. A juvenile Peregrine and first returning Oystercatcher on 29th January, and 4 red-legged Partridge on 31st Jan.

A visit to Calke Park and the feeding station on 17th January produced 2 Brambling and the usual common birds.
