    Trystan's world list 2019

    In the end, too lazy to try get any additions and left them for the new year with Rough legged buzzard and firecrest saved for 2020.

    Trystan's world list 2019

    06.12.2019 Not much expected from a long weekend in Kiev but with an excursion to the Chernobyl exclusion zone planned in, thought it was worth bringing along the bins. As it turned out, there were a couple of year ticks in amongst. Kiev ---. (001.) Rook ---. (002.) Hooded crow ---. (003.)...

    09.11.19 Flamborough Upgraded my awful views of Hume's warbler from Warwickshire a few years back to excellent views of two showy Hume's warblers at Flamborough and Bempton. Unfortunately, the sea watching was awful compared to previous days this week so there was nothing else to add. 398...

    03.11.19 Very nice day at spurn, tainted only by the unnecessary trapping and ringing of the long staying bluethroat early in the morning. The bird was clearly distressed while being held, flapping furiously to get away while the photographers snapped it up and the ringer to have the audacity...

    02.11.19 Seems like a while since my year list got any attention but did pick up the Swillington red necked phalarope last week. Very convenient of the Kentish plover to be so close to Middlesbrough as I was there for other reasons today anyway. Redcar ---. (240.) Kentish plover - 1st Yorkshire

    12.10.19 My autumn finally underway after 2 weekends of poor weather and dipping the local long billed dowitcher twice, I finally connected today and even better, added yellow browed warbler to my swillington list. Swillington ---. (237.) Yellow browed warbler 13.10.19 It was just as well...

    22.9.2019 Given the run around by Yank waders today. Headed into Lancs for American Golden Plover, Red necked Phalarope and Pectoral sandpiper. The former was not around in the morning so went to Marshside where the Red necked phalarope was showing well at least. Received negative news on the...

    While the debate has been to-ing and fro-ing on the Pied wheatear vs Black eared wheatear ID, I have been on a non-birding trip to China to walk about on the great wall. I didn't expect a great deal of birds from the trip and indeed, both the quantity of species and availability of birding...

    Trystan's world list 2019

    01/9/19 Pretty mental day today. Started by heading over to Spurn and after a brief wait, connected with the White rumped sandpiper. With a car full, and news breaking of Eastern black eared wheatear in Lancashire, the decision was made to cross the country for it. From my own observations...

    26/8/19 After the last disappointing weekend out and family commitments last weekend, I really needed a good one this week and I wasn't disappointed. Starting at Frampton, could happily have spent the day building up the wader count but also had designs on butterflies at Chambers woods so had...

    28/7/19 Outrunning the weather by heading north east with a full car. Attempts to arrange a boat to the Isle of May for reported aquatic warbler proved futile as did trying to get to Coquet island for roseate terns. Hartlepool 351. (225.) Rose ringed parakeet Holy island 352. (226.)...

    16/6/19 Horsey, Norfolk Another trek back into Norfolk much sooner than I expected. *328. (217.) Lesser grey shrike (1st UK) 344. (218.) Hobby Titchwell Not very optimistic about this one after my last visit but a 3 second flight view was enough 345. (219.) Purple heron
