3rd January

The first birding day of 2014 was definitely a windy one as yet another vicious Atlantic storm swept through the UK. The drake Green-winged Teal was the first of Decembers Nearctic trio to make it onto the New Years honours list, being seen in flooded fields near Kirbest where at least 120 Twite were still nearby. Numbers of large Gulls had also gathered in a few places, with a second-winter Glaucous Gull picked out among 110 Herring and 85 Great-black backed Gulls on Torness.
