That’s me for the day - just 4 more species but worth the effort
Kingfisher
Woodcock
Crossbill:p
Goshawk:D

Unfortunately the day came to a sour conclusion when I had a run-in with a couple of numpties on scramblers in the last patch of ancient woodland round here. Hope this isn’t a flavour of what 2021 has in store:(

Nice birds....

What are numpties on scramblers?? I'm imagining dirtbikes but....

I will have a report from the SE US coming later. Cold, grey and rainy here, but as far as I know I haven't seen a numpty or a scrambler ;)

My local west London walk this morning:

Mallard
Teal
Mandarin
Egyptian Goose
Mute Swan
Little Grebe
Cormorant
Grey Heron
Sparrowhawk
Peregrine
Kestrel
Coot
Moorhen
Water Rail
Black-headed Gull
Common Gull
Herring Gull
Feral Pigeon
Wood Pigeon
Stock Dove
Collared Dove
Ring-necked Parakeet
Green Woodpecker
Great-spotted Woodpecker
Meadow Pipit
Grey Wagtail
Pied Wagtail
Wren
Dunnock
Robin
Blackbird
Redwing

Goldcrest
Long-tailed Tit
Great Tit

Nuthatch
Jay
Magpie
Carrion Crow
Jackdaw

Linnet.

Most obvious omission is Red Kite which is an everyday bird over my garden but a grey manky day & not flying. Had 2 spots for Stonechat but no show. No major water bodies so limited selection of water birds. Others missing often see include Buzzard, Little Egret, Skylark, Coal Tit, Chiffchaff & the much scarcer now Greenfinch.
 
Didn't manage my usual new year circuit, instead just a walk from home around the north end of the village (Aviemore). Quite wet and cold and was walking on slushy snow in some parts and solid ice in others, thanks goodness for micro-spikes or I'd have spent a lot of time picking myself up off the ground! The only thing I can add is to the list is a Hooded Crow.

After walking quite a few miles with the pup I don’t think I can add anything to the UK list. Failed on Dipper despite being in a great area. Having said that has anyone added Mistle Thrush yet?

Halfway up an Alp
Europe
A stay at home day due to family commitments and a day long fog reducing visibility ( see photo from this am, the view stayed limited like this all day) so no Alpine species from me I‘m afraid. All I can add for Europe are the following :
Robin
Redwing
Hawfinch
Long-tailed Tit
Goldfinch

Back home and just about warmed up. 31 species in a bit under 3 hours. Looking at the UK lists received so far, I think Pochard is the only new species to add, my first of the winter.

I’m sure you’ve seen both at some time just under another name - you’re right scramblers are dirt bikes (or pit bikes as they call them here) and a numpty is derived from numbskull I think - ie idiots.
Just what you don’t want to meet on a peaceful walk through the woods.
