January 3rd 2008 Draycote Water

Strong cold north easterly wind.
Lesser Scaup first winter male in toft, Male Smew off farnborough bank, White-fronted Geese 2 and a Jack Snipe in the Field behind farnborough spit.
A long-tailed Duck reported earlier still present mid afternoon though distant from farnborough spit and the roost held at least 3 adult and 2 first winters Yellow-legged Gulls and one adult Caspian Gull in roost. Finally a Fulmar was found off biggen bay 1545pm - not sure if it was overlooked earlier or had come into roost.
Also Shelduck female in biggen bay, 2 Buzzards, Raven and a few Lesser Redpolls and Siskin. Another Raven and a Rock Pipit seen by John Sirrett.
