Having returned to university, I've been reacquainting myself with the 'away patch'. Yesterday produced the wintering male Bearded Tit and ten Purple Sandpipers along with a single Eider. A walk through a promising-looking field today did not disappoint, with seven Jack Snipes and at least thirteen Common Snipes coming up. Raven and Moorhen were also ticks while two Eiders were offshore.
