Last day of the Christmas Holidays today and the parents were back at work, so something was bound to turn up. Around lunch time I got a text off Paul Slade informing me of a Red Necked Grebe on Fairhaven Lake in Lytham, bugger!! This is a big gap in my life list but unfortunately I couldn't get out to see it today so I'm praying that it will stick around till the weekend.
I did some birding from my bedroom in the hope that I would connect with the local Pheasant and maybe some other year ticks, however it was deathly quiet all except for another flyover Raven. This is the 3rd time I've seen this bird in 2 weeks so it must be hanging around the area.
