Quick update from Wanstead where it feels like I've not had a patch year tick since about August. I must look it up. Anyway, 2 Goldeneye on Heronry Pond were the first since 2009 and indeed only my second (and third) ever record. Patch Gold as some might say. Always a possibility, but didn't really think it would happen in such a critical year. From here on in it's all about oddball records.....
Takes me once again to the top of the pile, though a single bird probably now separates 1 and 5.
