Bloody windy

With the forecast for rain and gusty winds most of the day we donned our wet gear and plodded out to farborough spit, Draycote Water hoping for something mouth-wateringly good but all we had was 3 Rock Pipit, our first Goosander of the winter, Shoveler and 4 Pochard. Weather did not let up when we arrived at Napton Reservoir and saw only 4 Snipe, 2 Gadwall and 12 Shoveler. With news that local sites were picking up seabirds I went back out in the afternoon to the pond and it was horrendous so hunkered down amongst the sailing boats and rewarded with 2 first winter and one adult Kittiwake on the surface in front of sailing club.
