Up on patch at dawn after a few days absence, and rewarded with a female Goldeneye on the East Reservoir - the first to be recorded for several years.
Very little else of note, with barely any visible migration, except for record numbers of Fieldfares; flocks included 100, 90 & 80, all heading west.
