Sunday January 15. I met Dave Scanlan at Netherstead farm, and we began the first frost affected visit for at least a month. The pool and flashes were frozen, but the cold weather has at last enticed some ducks, nine Teal, to visit. A couple of fly-over Mute Swans and a record count of 14 Cormorants, which flew around after approaching from the Studley direction, were also new for the year. The year list advances to 61 species.
