Wryneck and the 140 target!
Well over the last week and since returning from Biscay I have finally added Wryneck to my county list when I saw the long staying bird at Great Glen on the Sunday. After that I found a couple of good birds down the Soar Valley which pushed me past 140 target mark. These included a juvenile Marsh Harrier flying over Cossington Meadows LRWT, which John Hague just about twitched from London!?!, a nice looking adult winter Black Tern at Watermead CP South and a "dodgy?" Cape Shelduck on Wanlip Meadows LRWT which was a Soar Valley tick for me!
