The only way is Essex.....

Me, Jono, and Bradders take a trip to north east Essex for some filthy year list action which involved a trip to Great Braxsted in search of Hawfinch where we find at least ten birds by the entrance to the golf course, and connect with the immature Red Kite near bye.

Then onto Mersea Island where we find the Lapland flock in stubble containing 30 birds, easily my biggest Essex flock.

Latter we arrive at Abberton Reservoir where the flock of 6 Pinkfeet and 6 Tundra Beans still present with back up of 8 Smew and a fine ringtail Hen Harrier.
