February 3: Christchurch, UK

A trip to Stanpit Marshes just over the border in Dorset to attempt to pick up the long-staying stilt sandpiper... no such luck!

99. Eurasian Spoonbill

February 9: Portsmouth, UK

Headed down to see the obliging Black Redstart family that had taken up residence in the old town.

100. Purple Sandpiper
101. Black Redstart

February 10: Slaugham & Warnham, UK

A trip to Slaugham in Surrey to pick up some more hawfinch, then down to my near-Crawley regular reserve of Warnham. Nuthatch was in Slaugham, rest in Warnham

102. Eurasian Nuthatch
103. Eurasian Siskin
104. Coal Tit

February 11: London, UK

London WWT for another attempt at Bitterns. Still no luck, but the Jack Snipe was an unexpected bonus!

105. Egyptian Goose
106. * Jack Snipe

February 24: Blashford, UK

A dash down to Blashford Lakes to find the Thayer's Gull. I know Thayer's is no longer on the IOC list, but the gull was still a lifer for me because I dipped the Iceland at Dungeness!

108. Brambling
109. * Iceland Gull
110. Yellow-Legged Gull

February 25: Titchfield, UK

A fairly productive day back at Titchfield to round off February. Ravens on the canal path, rest on the reserve.
