Can't remember where it was exactly, but missed an inland Steppe Grey Shrike somewhere inland (in the late 90s I think) literally because we got stuck behind a tractor. It had apparently been seen on...

My best were 4 Penduline Tits in London in seperate records, all juveniles. The first I picked up as it flew out of a reedbed and circled overhead briefly calling. I'd never seen one before but...

It was about my only inspiration after dipping that bloody waxwing twice from London as a kid, so it has that slight redemption for me. The Canvasback was so bloody boring I was more interested in...

Luckily one that Sussex stands a decent chance at on one of the coastal cliffs over...
