Out on my bike Saturday morning, in icy, windy weather. Still, I made it out to the coast, which was good, and spent an hour at Cresswell Pond. On the way there, I picked up a couple of

68. Yellowhammer

in the hedgerows near the Linton roundabout.

The at Cresswell pond:

69. Pinkfoot goose
70. Tree sparrow
71. Dunlin

And north of Cresswell pond, in the fields near the farmhouse:

72. Twite

SO, the end of January arrives, and my total is a rather feeble 75, with 72 species in the UK and 3 further species in Switzerland (this compared to 86 last year!)
