17th November

A second-winter Glaucous Gull and a Mute Swan were the pick of a very thin selection of new birds. A thorough goose count wasn't done, but 6 Tundra Bean Geese, 10 Pink-footed Geese and 10 European White-fronted Geese were seen and 3 Whooper Swans were still present. The Goosander, 3 Scaups and 2 Common Scoters all remained from earlier days, as did a Woodpigeon, a Collared Dove and a Black Redstart. There were 3 Long-eared Owls in Holland House garden, 2 of which might have been fresh migrants.
