Birding - 1 Jan 2011

Just a brief ramble around, first of all to Chobham Common, which proved on the north side of the M3 to be particularly devoid of birds after the cold spell.

Followed by a visit to Dorney Wetlands produced a female Goosander and immature drake Smew, a male and 2 female Red-crested Pochards, but no sign of any Bittern or Bearded Tits.
