1. White-tailed Eagle
2. Sparrowhawk
3. Great Spotted Woodpecker
4. Middle Spotted Woodpecker
5. Great Tit
6. Blue Tit
7. Marsh Tit
8. Great Grey Shrike
9. Jay
10. Magpie
11. Raven

Level pegging at 40 same date as last year, still awaiting a drop in temps to stir things up.

With my 'big day' of 33 species on 1st I am hopefully on course for a new record total for January, average total for the whole month over our 7 years here is 37 and I'm already there! The best ever January I had brought me 41 species, surely I can find 5 more in the next 23 days to beat that 🤞
