Wraysbury GP and Chobham Common - 1 January 2013

A morning wander around Wraysbury GP complex revealed eight Smew (four drakes) and fifteen Goosander, but otherwise there did not seem to be a particularly high number of passerines present.

An afternoon visit to Chobham Common amongst the throng of New Years day walkers as a bit of a recce for a future ringing sessions, we managed to locate four Dartford Warblers and four Stonechat, but otherwise seemed to lack any Redpolls or other Finches in any significant numbers.
