Cold, grey day today, but finally saw the Lesser Yellowlegs at Lodmoor (a rare vagrant from North America) and a Eurasian Spoonbill. Later, spotted the long staying Ring-necked Duck at Radipole. Great birding day!

Very windy day. While walking the dog, a pheasant shot out and nearly gave me a heart attack! But at least another tick for the year list.

79. Common Pheasant
