New Year's Day 2011
As recent tradition has evolved, the Mrs and I did a "casual" year list today on bike and foot, joined by our good friends Lee and Rachel for the afternoon session.
The final tally made 72 species with highlights being:

Great-northern Diver - 1 off Budleigh sea front

Red-throated Diver - 12 east past Budleigh sea front
Goosander - 1 on the Otter
Bar-tailed Godwit - 1 on the Otter
Blackcap - 2+ in the garden

The day was rounded off with a good old "ruby" at the Taj Mahal - bloody good.
