Bird News Jan 2nd

Whitlingham continues to be the most 'interesting' place for scarcities, with Smew, Ruddy Duck (increasingly rare, particularly in winter) and Shag adding to the list. The Ring-necked Duck was (briefly) at Wroxham, but no sign of the Ferruginous today. A Waxwing lingered at Northrepps and an Iceland Gull was at Blackborough tip, with two Caspian Gulls.
2 Shorelarks and a flock of Snow Bunting are still at Snettisham, along with a Scaup.

A Willow Tit was retrapped at Boughton Fen (Allen Hale rings here and is extremely amiable if you happen to coincide with his sessions). Sculthorpe also has Willow Tit and the dubious Golden Pheasant still!

Reading James' Blog adds a few excellent birds:
Ferruginous Duck still at Barton Broad (was it there y'day I wonder, two birds?), Willow Tit at Strumpshaw and Taigas and Swan herd both still present.
