Wednesday January 6th

Another 4 species added today with the highlight being the lingering juv glauc on the freshmarsh. Not the best views as it slept on the ice but a brute of a bird. A brief flight view of a bittern and a ringtail hen harrier has taken the list to 79.

A new non-avian species for me at Titchwell came in the form of the harlequin ladybird. Several individuals were found sheltering on some willow bushes we were cutting in the reedbed. All were of the same colour type - black with 2 red patches on each wingcase.
