Trystan's 2015 world list

I'm aiming for 600 species this year based on planned holidays to Ghana and Greece plus the usual suspects at home.

As in previous years, lifers will be in capitals.

Initial plans to go for Blyth's pipit at Pugney's were altered at the last minute with the arrival of the Little Bustard near Bridlington. I made a half hearted effort to see robin and wren singing near the house as I set off then nothing seen until a shadowy probable kestrel while stood around the field at Fraisthorpe with a few hundred other birders.

So the first bird actually seen and ID'd was:

01/01/15

Fraisthorpe, Yorkshire

1. LITTLE BUSTARD

Could only go down hill from this incredible start and with the blustery weather, I certainly missed a few things on the coast which I would normally have picked up.

2. Mute swan
3. Herring gull
4. Black headed gull
5. Jackdaw
6. Feral pigeon

All seen as I returned from the bustard field to the village. Next I headed over to Bridlington to check out the area just south of the harbour for waders with a few common species picked up along the drive.

Bridlington

7. Rook
8. Woodpigeon
9. Carrion crow
11. Blackbird
12. Magpie
13. Turnstone
14. Sanderling
15. Oystercatcher
16. Redshank
17. Purple sandpiper

No sign of any dunlin and in my eagerness to head out to try for the Grindale rough legged buzzard, I didn't bother checking the harbour which cost me red throated diver for the day.

Grindale

18. Buzzard - On the hedge next to the road, thought I had got lucky straight away but it wasn't to be.

19. Kestrel
20. Fieldfare
21. Mistle thrush
22. Blue tit
23. Coal tit
24. Long tailed tit
25. Chaffinch
26. Yellowhammer

Report of Lapland bunting at Buckton so I tried there next with no joy. A few more common species picked up.

Buckton

27. Pheasant
28. Moorhen
29. Tree sparrow
30. Collared dove

Next stop Filey for a quick look at the dams then out on the brigg where the wind really prevented any decent birding, the bay seemed devoid of anything much.

Filey

Dams:

31. Mallard
32. Greylag goose
33. Canada goose
34. Gadwall
35. Teal
36. Grey heron
37. Coot
38. Sparrowhawk

Brigg:

39. Fulmar
40. Gannet
41. Shag
42. Great black backed gull
43. Starling

Too windy to persist, gave up trying to scope the bay and headed up to Scarborough next.

Scarborough

44. Mediterranean gull - As usual on the roof of the first house at holbeck carpark with black headed gulls.

45. Cormorant

Scarborough was heaving along the front so plans to stop and check out the harbour were abandoned and I headed out to the forge valley.

46. Marsh tit
47. Nuthatch
48. Great spotted woodpecker
49. Stock dove
50. Jay

I gave it a little while to try and get treecreeper and also still had failed to see robin, wren, goldfinch, greenfinch and great tit but bizarrely these species usually in my first 20 of the year all eluded me for the day!

Next up to my last stop on the coast for Richard's pipit.

Cloughton wyke

51. Richard's pipit

I arrived at the car park at the same time as a couple of other birders and we circled the usual field until we spotted it hopping around thrush-like giving great scope views.

With about 2 hours light left, I considered heading back to try again for RLB but instead thought to head back closer to home and pick up the Great northern diver on Mixenden reservoir. I arrived in the gloom with rain and wind blasting across the water and failed miserably to locate the bird despite doing a full circuit of what is not a very big reservoir and concluded that it had finally moved on in the face of such abysmal weather. I did pick up one more year tick here however.

Mixenden reservoir

52. Goldcrest

Garden

55. Robin!

Pugney's

My plan for the 1st Jan executed today with the Blyth's pipit being the main target.

Very promising start in dull but dry conditions as I arrived to

56. Jack snipe - Flushed by a birder at the top of the field
57. Pied wagtail
58. Blyth's pipit - Much closer than last year but always in and out of the grassy tussocks

A walk round Calder wetlands then Pugneys added

59. Tufted duck
60. Goosander
61. Great crested grebe
62. Wigeon
63. Shoveler
64. Pochard
65. Lapwing
66. Goldeneye
67. Great tit
68. Song thrush
69. Wren
70. Lesser black backed gull

By the time I'd finished, it was pouring down and I abandoned plans to move on to Winterset as no reports of Smew, however, the Great Northern Diver was still on Mixenden res so as the weather improved in the afternoon I headed out again, this time finding the bird easily.

Mixenden reservoir

71. Great northern diver

Another jaunt to find a few year ticks planning to end up at Blacktoft for the harrier roost.

Swillington ings

72. Shelduck
73. Bullfinch
74. Redwing
75. Meadow pipit
76. Reed bunting
77. Stonechat
78. Curlew
79. Goldfinch
80. Black necked grebe
81. Pintail
82. Snipe
83. Red kite

Fairburn

Didn't have too long to spend here as Smew was reported at Huggin carr, I wanted to head here then get to Blacktoft in time for some general birding as well as the roost so stuck to the feeding station area.

84. Greenfinch
85. Willow tit

Huggin carr

86. Little grebe
87. Smew - Always nice to see, a male and a female here.

Blacktoft

Really poor here tonight. With kingfisher, bearded tit, merlin peregrine all around as well as the harriers the previous day, all I managed was:

88. Black tailed godwit
89. Marsh harrier

Stayed until 5pm, marsh harrier activity had stopped about half an hour previous and still no sign of the hen harriers.

May try again next weekend.

Lisbon airport

A window of opportunity while waiting for my transfer didn't produce many species. Highlights were a pair of common buzzards and this bird on the Tarmac with house sparrows.

100. Created lark

A nice round number to start my holiday list from. Will update again on my return.

Bradford

Maybe the last few weeks of cold weather has brought the Redpolls back to the work carpark. They have been regular the last two winters but today was my first sighting this winter. Around 10 birds with Goldfinches and Greenfinches. Will keep an eye out for Siskin over the week.

Got all the Valentine's stuff out of the way yesterday leaving me free to go for the Laughing gull on the Wirral. Managed to pick up some great birds today. Missed the snow buntings on the first attempt but fortunately hadn't gone too far and was able to go back and connect with them.

New Brighton

437. Laughing gull (1st UK sat on the favoured pontoon when I arrived just after 8am)
438. Bar tailed godwit
439. Knot

West Kirby

440. Red breasted merganser
441. Skylark

Leasowe

442. Snow bunting

Burton mere wetlands

443. Long eared owl

Orrell Water Park

This was a difficult place to get to with a chunk of the A577 blocked my satnav was impotent but once I finally managed it, the bird was easy enough to find due to the number of huge lenses pointing in it's general direction.

444. Waxwing
