Woodcock is another late addition to year list

21st December 2007 - heavy frost SE2/3
Wildfowl and Waders
A Woodcock, presumably a refugee from the continued frost, was new in and 2 Greenshank were logged.
Highlights of further Winter Atlas work on the remoter, less often visited, areas of the island involved single Short-eared Owl, Barn Owl, Merlin and Water Rail and 2 Great Spotted Woodpecker - it has probably been the best ever autumn/winter for the latter species on the island.
