16th Jan

Went out with Godfrey and Ken though it was rather too cold for comfortable bird watching from a wheelchair. On the basis of news and with the chance of getting a lifer for Godfrey we went to Banbury. Managed to see the birds without getting out of the car and Godfrey was happy with a warm birdwatch and three Waxwings sitting in a roadside small tree. Back to Brandon and a warm cup of tea before a quick sprint up to Newlands and back to blow some cold air through our hair. Most of the duck were on Swallow Pool with the Black-headed Gulls and two Redshank the best from East Marsh Pool. The sun was directly in our eyes from Baldwin hide so did not bother sitting down just went out for another blast of winter sun.
