I had 2 LAPLAND BUNTINGS this morning (winter male seen well and 1st winter seen briefly), with Skylarks and Linnets at TL097262 ie fields east of Warden and Galley Hills. I saw them at about 08:30 and then the lark/finch flock moved towards the Warden Hill trig point; 385 Golden Plover also in the area (Jonathan Palmer)

Elsewhere, Peter Smith confirmed the continuing presence of the first-winter COMMON TERN on Stewartby Lake - the latest-ever record in the county
