Another eight patch ticks over the weekend. By far the 'best' was Redpoll - a full fat patch tick no less although honourable mentions must go to Barnacle goose (miss them some years) and Merlin (only my 3rd on patch).
El Castillo gets Redpolls most years though so I've just been blind until now. Sensors now feasted on such jewels it will be interesing to see if I ever spot them again or lapse back to usual ways.
85.39% with still some rank-rotten common stuff to connect with. No sign of a decent bird for the year yet though. The joys of patch watching.
