Managed to get my own Woodcock by nipping down through Richard's wood, not in the garden but nearby. Also from there lots of Redwing and Fieldfare and 2 Mallard.
Not so many Chaffinch today but the Common Gull flock was at about 2,000. Yellowhammer seem much more abundant than a week ago, the cold weather pulling them in to the food perhaps - probably 8 or 9 different ones around the garden - maybe more.
At Sandsend the sea was very rough, only a Red-throated Diver and Grey Wagtail were of note.
