Patchwork Challenge February catch up with PWC Lifer.

I only made a few trips out in Feb, and at the start of the month a walk around Ebridge got me to see some fly over Crossbill. Also some flyover Pink-footed Geese.

Some of the Pink-footed Geese over Ebridge

I also popped through Gimingham seeing more Goosander on the patch and a red head Smew, also added Egyptian Goose for the patch year list.

A walk through Witton mid month proved fruitless see only a handful of Siskin.

At the end of the month (23rd Feb) I spent the morning out and about, a great start to the day seeing two Waxwing early doors in a roadside tree between Swafield and Trunch. I Then walked around the cliff top at Trimingham.

I spotted a small group of duck, well 15 flying past over the sea, and getting the scope on them you could clearly see that they were Scoter and one of them a Velvet a new bird for the PWC life list. Further scanning of the sea added Mediterranean Gull to the year list, as well as seeing Guillemot, Gannet and Red-throated Diver.

I then looked up and spotted in the corner of my eye another flock of 15 birds although these were much bigger as a small group of Swans flew past Bewick's 13 and 2 Whooper.

A bit more seawatching and I added Fulmar and Wigeon to the PWC year list before going to Pigney's Wood.

Pigneys wood was very quiet did see Cetti's Warbler and Bullfinch which is always nice.
