Looking back at 2020

2020...that's the year and not the sickly, nasty alcoholic drink of my youth often nicknamed 'Mad Dog' - in many respects the year and the drink have actually got a lot in common! I've tried to remain positive and upbeat whilst putting together this post but please bear with me as birding and general wildlife highlights from the year were few are far between.

Wanstead

I continued to bash the patch whenever possible throughout 2020 and I did mange two full-fat ticks (Dunlin and Crossbill) both of which were expected to fall at some point and it was only a matter of time in mopping them both up. My patch list now stands on 147 and the hallowed 150 is within my grasp, so 2021 is all about three patch ticks - but what will they be? KittiwakeGrasshopper Warbler, Whimbrel or even the fabled Oystercatcher

I only managed a mediocre 105 for the year, this was despite being furloughed for 3 months during the Spring and upping the number of visits throughout this period, mainly thanks to cycling to the patch as part of my daily exercise - this was one of the plus points of the year. The purchase of a new mountain bike and getting back into the saddle (although I hardly benefited on the birding front) was something I hugely enjoyed and hope to do more of in the future (low-carbon birding and health reasons etc, etc).

Looking back at the patch list for 2020 and there were interestingly a lot of second records - Nightingale, Cuckoo, GreenshankWhite-fronted Goose, Goosander which helped to add a little bit of quality to the list and then there was that 'Eastern type' Lesser Whitethroat that spent a couple days in the Brooms at the end of October - although this was not a full fat patch tick as it's not technically a separate species (well, not yet) this for me eclipsed both Dunlin and Crossbill as my patch bird of the year. I've seen Eastern (Blythi) LWT on Shetland and Scilly's but to see one on the patch, giving excellent views, whilst being able to note the finer points of identification was an enjoyable experience.

I can't help but think that Wanstead didn't quite deliver in 2020 - I mean the coverage was good (sometimes a bit too good) as anybody birding on the Flats at the end of August will testify, it rivalled Titchwell at times with the number individuals searching for autumn migrants was staggering! But no Shrike, Wryneck, Yellow-browed Warbler, rare Bunting or the like this year...let's hope for a return to form in 2021.

Only the 2nd Cuckoo I'd ever seen at Wanstead

Blythi
My 2020 Patch bird of the year - Eastern Lesser Whitethroat (just need Martin Collinson to pull his finger out and confirm the DNA sample provided).

I could muse about the birds I didn't see or had missed on the patch but that would be just another negative and there's been enough negativity this year, however it's probably worth noting that I didn't see an Autumn Ring Ouzel (and nor did anyone else) which is virtually unheard off at Wanstead and I never saw a Red Kite - I mean, how did I not see a Red Kite? These birds are two a penny now days! And then there was those two Cranes - I can't really complain about missing these as I wasn't on the patch at the time but it was terribly gripping to witness the scene unfold on my phone as the birds were tracked over north London and then over Wanstead - oh well, you can't see them all! Well done to those lucky few who added these to their patch lists, I can only hope breeding records in east Anglia continue to climb and we'll be seeing these magnificent birds annually circling NE London in the future.

Lockdown Garden Bird List

I managed to record 60 species throughout 2020 (mainly from March 23rd as we entered lockdown) - not bad for a small urban London garden with a view that is mainly obscured by my neighbours roof. The undoubted highlights were a male Marsh Harrier low over the rooftops on the 27th March (my birthday) Coot and Rook were both new additions to the garden list and a Greenfinch on my feeders on Christmas Eve was a bit special. This was the first Greenfinch actually in the garden (Instead of just a calling flying over) in 16 years of living in Woodford Green - we've got Trichomonosis to thank for their absence but this could be the start of a local revival with goods numbers also now being seen on Wanstead Flats.

Garden, Feeders, Trichomonosis
I've waited 16 long years to witness this!

Moths

Another plus point in 2020 was the re-emergence of my Moth Trap. As I touched on earlier having been furloughed for 3 months enabled me to ignite an old passion - garden mothing. This was hugely enjoyable and gave me something good to focus on (away from home-schooling two children). In regards to numbers there was nothing really to shout about with 148 species recorded, but on the 9th September I discovered a little bit of moth-gold in a NE London garden a Clancy's Rustic! At the time it was only the 13th record for Essex (VC17/18) - I suspect this number will rapidly rise as this moth, like many others expands it's range further north - still, it remains a highlight for me and is something I'll look back fondly on in 2020.

Clancy's Rustic - 13th for Essex. I'll take that!

Trips

There's a joke of a title! You could barely travel to see your family, let alone go on a twitch or dare I say a holiday in 2020 but I did somehow manage (and I'm not sure how this also wasn't cancelled) a hastily arranged week on the Scilly Isles with three foes (Martin, Paul and Andy) - this was in place of our cancelled trip to Shetland. And all in all it was a descent last minute substitute - there were good birds to be seen and found, barrels of laughter (and beer) and cracking company to be had on these magical isles. This was topped-off with one very special bird that will live long in the memory and made what would have been a good trip into something of a personal birding highlight...Black-and-White Warbler on Tresco!

Tresco, Scilly, UK
My bird of the year - no contest!

And that kind-off sums up 2020 - memorable for mainly the wrong reasons in which we all suffered the effects of the Covid virus in one form or another, but despite the gloom I did manage a few positives and we as a country (or actually a planet) can hopefully look forward to a brighter 2021 when a return to some kind of normality will be suitably rejoiced and face masks can be binned and hugs and handshakes will be fashionable again!

All the best for 2021.

A Very Merry Med Gulls!

What's better than a Med Gull on the patch? Two Med Gulls on the Patch!

I met up with most of team Wanstead (Jono, Bob, Richard, Rob and Mary) at Vismig for a Christmas mince pie, coffee and a wee dram - this was pre-planned and was the best we could muster in the these desperate Covid times, with the annual Christmas pub get together obviously cancelled this felt like the our best and only sensible option. It was good to catch-up with everyone but standing around in the wet is not a lot of fun (even with a nip of Brandy inside you) so we headed over to Jubilee Pond as the heavens opened! 

This move turned-out to be a masterstroke as Richard calmly enquired "Is that a Med Gull?" - Yes! A lovely 1st-winter bird was sat on the water - this was a full fat patch tick for Rob and year ticks for the rest of the guys (I was fortunate to have found an adult earlier in the year) but was still really happy to have seen my 12th Med Gull at Wanstead. After lapping up some great views of the bird and downing another nip of Brandy to celebrate Rob's patch tick - rude not too after all! We headed over to the SSSI and enjoyed the increasing flock of Redpoll now numbering 40+ birds in the Birch Trees - no sign of any Mealy's or Arctic Snowballs sadly...so not long after we all went our separate ways, wishing each other a very Merry Christmas.

On the walk back to the car I picked up the 2nd White-fronted Goose on Alexandra lake, after it somehow strangely alluded us all in the morning - I then decided to swing by Jubilee Pond again before heading home. I bumped into Jono who had found the Med Gull again was giving this a good papping after not having his camera with him originally. As we both followed the bird around the pond, a bread-chucking member of the public showed-up and before long a throng of Gulls were all around us. It was quite easy to lose the bird in the melee and I'd seen it circling but lost it again, oddly Jono had it again on the deck - but really close up! 'That's not the original bird" I stumped up "Look at that head pattern". Well, what do you know - you wait all year for a Med Gull to show up and you get two birds together, thankfully I wasn't seeing double due to several nips of Brandy and this was my 12th and 13th records of Mediterranean Gull at Wanstead in the one morning. 

A cracking way for me to probably finish-up the year, with more stringent lock-downs proposed in these parts - who knows when and if I'll be out next!

Norwegian Ringed Common Gulls

More often than not I don't get rewarded for sifting through each and every Gull on the patch weekend after weekend, but occasionally those efforts do come up trumps - on this occasion it was with a new colour-ringed Common Gull. I also reached a nice little milestone when I discovered the bird amongst the wintering flock of gulls on the football pitches, (JH674) is the 10th Norwegian ringed Common Gull to have wintered in this part of the world (north-east London) - further underlining the strong connection and movements of Common Gulls between the two areas (summer/breeding in Norway and then wintering in the UK/Wanstead).

JH674 was ringed on the 1st July 2018 in Sandnes, Rogaland and is an adult female, it was recorded again in the same area of Norway two years later on the 12th July 2020 before heading south (almost 600 miles) for the winter, showing up on Wanstead Flats on the 12th December 2020 - with this being the only sighting away from Norway.

Here's the list of the 10 Norwegian ringed Common Gulls recorded on Wanstead Flats with the 2nd table showing many of those birds returning year after year.

From Russia with Love

It's a funny how a weekend of fog and murk can play havoc with a birds natural navigation, especially when this coincides with the migration and large winter arrival of wildfowl into the UK from the continent, but I won't complain as Wanstead along with many UK sites (including several in the London region) benefited from all the confusion as White-fronted Geese popped up in the most random of places.

Before connecting with the lone adult bird that first appeared on the football pitches on Monday, I'd only ever seen a single flock of White-fronted Geese on the patch, when a skein of 15 flew over the Flats on 8th October 2016 - this was one of those 'Special' patch days that sticks in the mind, as there was Yellow-browed Warbler and several Ring Ouzel also knocking around that wonderful autumn day.

Unlike the skein of geese that circled the Flats in 2016 today's single White-fronted Goose happily (if not a little oddly) grazed all alone on the football pitches, affording some amazing views of this truly wild grey goose from the east - It was eventually spooked by a couple of passers by and flew to the relative safety of Alexandra lake. It's a bit of a worry just how confiding this goose is (I suspect its contact with humans has been minimal, if at all) here's hoping it safely does a bunk and joins up with a wintering geese flock somewhere safe and doesn't end up as Wanstead fox fodder!

Intermedius Lesser Black-backed Gull

A Lesser Black-backed Gull (1CY) still retaining its juvenile plumage in November! Is this a common sight? Well, not in urban north-east London, and I can't remember seeing one in this plumage on the patch before so late into the year - this chocolate brown Lesser Black-backed Gull stood out amongst the throng of Gulls on Jubilee pond (Wanstead Flats). 

As far as I'm aware all our British or 'southern' juvenile Lesser Black-backed Gulls (graellsii) have long gone through a post-juvenile moult into a 1st-winter plumage. With this being the case, seeing a 1CY bird still in this juvenile plumage would suggest a bird from the far northern colonies, mostly likely the northern tip of Norway, so you could safely presume a bird of the ssp 'Intermedius'. 

A fair number of our Common Gulls on the Flats also originate from Norway and will have followed a similar line of migration south, as the Scandinavian winter takes hold.

Lesser Black-backed Gulls (Intermedius) are not uncommon (but are far less-common than our nominate graellsii). I've seen adult birds (probably the easiest plumage to pick-out) with their noticeably darker tones in the mantle/back/wings on the Flats before, but I've never knowingly seen a juvenile, so It's been a nice little bit of Gull education. I also suspect this may have been a just a brief stopover for this bird before continuing on to southern Europe and North/West Africa and its wintering grounds, a journey of over 5000km before finally losing those juvenile feathers and moulting into 1st-winter plumage - who said Gulls are boring?

As always, comments appreciated and most welcome.

The Snaresbrook Caspian Gull - Returns for the 5th Year!

What a thrill to have this beauty back on my doorstep for another winter and looking absolutely majestic!
 
It was almost midday when I found the bird happily sat on the water at Eagle Pond, eagerly waiting for the next opportunity to steal some bread from an unsuspecting Black-headed Gull. The light isn't great at this time of day and I spent most of the time pointing the camera towards the low autumn sun, but at least there will be plenty of opportunity to improve on these photos over the coming winter months.
 
This is now the 5th consecutive year this Caspian Gull has spent the winter in the Wanstead/Snaresbrook area and I've been fortunate to have watched it slowly go through various ages and moults from 1st-winter back in December 2015 to full blown adult here in 2020.

It clearly loves the area or should I say the bread that's in constant supply from the duck feeding public, and long may it continue to come back year after year as watching and photographing a local Caspian Gull sure brightens up a quiet winters day when nothings happening on the patch at Wanstead.

'Eastern-type' Lesser Whitethroat on Wanstead Flats

Just a few photos of the 'Eastern-type' Lesser Whitethroat from Wanstead Flats today (25th October 2020).

A great find by Rob Sheldon and with poo sample collected for DNA analysis, team Wanstead eagerly await the findings - Will it be Blythi or Halimondendri?

As always, comments and opinion welcome...

Black & White Warbler on Tresco

My week on the Scillies this autumn will be remembered for one bird - but what a bird! The Black & White Warbler on Tresco.

Thursday 8th October and expectations were running high, after several days of strong westerly winds an Atlantic warm front had swept though the south-west overnight, giving hope that an American passerine or two would make landfall. Paul Hawkins and I had done a loop of Peninnis Head and had seen very little other than a smart female Merlin acrobactically pluck a Linnet from a flock feeding in one of the fields. The wind had now subsided and the weather brightened as we slowly made our way to the Garrison and Lower Broome checking every bit of cover along the way, if anywhere on St Mary's was going to produce something special then surely it would be here?

We bumped into Ash Fisher who was also thinking along the same lines, as the three of us searched the canopy and reminisced about previous Scilly discoveries a message came up on the IOS Whatsapp group - Black and White Warbler, Tresco in cover behind the two hides overlooking Great Pool! A crackle of Ash's CB radio and a voice confirmed the sighting and boats were being lined up at 2pm and 2.30pm - Without hesitation we headed quickly towards the quayside, it was just after 1.30pm and Paul & I were in the queue for the 2pm boat within 15 minutes of the news breaking - the boat soon quickly filled up. I'm not sure what the maximum number of people allowed on the boat is, but let's just say it was full! Andy Lawson was at this point in the Longstone Cafe and was playing it cool as he demolished his second cream tea of the week. In the meantime Martin Blow was already on Tresco (dipping another Arctic Warbler) but had already scored the Humbug and was giving us 5 minute updates on the birds whereabouts as we made the twenty minute crossing. We soon landed on Tresco and we were walking (at pace) across the island - I'm not sure how long the walk is (probably a mile or two) but it appeared to go on forever!

As we approached the area behind the hides, we could see Martin gesturing and pointing in the distance, racing up to him the bird was clearly in view but by now the crowd from the boat had swelled and peering into the thick moss covered hedge was becoming difficult as it quickly moved left, then right. I'll have to admit to a moment of panic as I struggled to connect - it's funny how you can't see the wood for the trees at these crucial moments - but then, and after a minute of two I finally connected with that amazing stripey-humbug, a first for me. I was taken back at just how clean and bright the bird was, without a feather out of place it shone bright in the dense cover - At this point I might have punched the air or something similar! 

After several high-fives with Paul and Martin and anybody else nearby, I decided to move away from the crowd (which I might add, were all wearing face coverings) and set myself-up with the camera further along the hedge. I crouched lowdown in an open gap, and sure enough a few minutes later the bird was slowly moving my way as I could hear the directions coming from the crowd. Raising my bins the Black & White Warbler came into full view, before being lost again behind the thicker branches but none the less I'd fired off a dozen or so shots from the camera trying my hardest to manual focus on the bird, checking the back of the camera I flicked through the resulting images and sure enough i'd captured that black and white piece of gold! Simon Nichols was sitting next to me at the time and I showed him the image - we both couldn't quite believe what we'd seen and experienced.

Black & White Warbler may not be rarest of birds with 16 previous UK records (I think) but it's certainly right up there in regards to looks and still carries a special enigma amongst the birding fraternity and has been a dream bird I've always wanted to see in the UK for as long as I can remember.

Clancy's Rustic - Moth Gold!

I've finally struck a little bit of moth gold in the form of Clancy's Rustic!

Just to give you a bit of background Clancy's Rustic was first discovered in the UK in 2002 at Dungeness, Kent by Mr Sean Clancy and the vernacular name Clancy's Rustic was thus created. Since then and like a lot of continental moths its range has very slowly started to creep further north and is now annually recorded in small numbers along the south coast and through Kent but records for Essex (VC17/18) have remained very scarce, so much so that there has only a been handful of previous records (13) and these were generally coastal - That was until I discovered this beauty in the moth trap this morning!

A quick email to the Essex moth recorder and bingo my suspicions were confirmed and the 14th record for Essex and the furthest West (inland) were in the bag.

And to add to this little episode...I remember meeting Sean Clancy on a couple of occasions whilst staying at the Ob's at Dungeness as a spotty teenager in the late 1980's and I would stand and wonder (open mouthed at times) as Sean and a small band of Lepidopterist followers would empty the moth trap, quickly identifying an array of largely bland, brown and grey moths - And now, all these years later I'm the one identifying these bland, brown and grey moths and one just happened to be Clancy's Rustic.

Birding In the Shadow of Canary Wharf

I don't say it very often but today was a really good day birding the patch, from the moment I stepped onto the Flats at first light and picked up Common Sandpiper and Kingfisher on Alexandra Lake until I left at midday, Wanstead was alive with passage migrants.

It's always hard to be 100% accurate with numbers as you're often repeatedly seeing the same birds just in slightly different areas but to briefly summarise I would suggest there were 4+ Common Redstart, 5 Northern Wheatear, 4 Whinchat, 2 Spotted Flycatcher, Yellow Wagtail, Blackcap, Whitethroat and Lesser Whitethroat a sprinkling of Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff and let's not forget a bonus calling Greenshank - all this just a stones throw away from Canary Wharf!

Not bad for a urban East London patch that does occasionally still surprise me - the only thing missing was that marque sighting which would have been the cherry on today's cake...oh well, there's always tomorrow!

88% Self-found Rating

We all know birders like to keep lists, many birders keep lists of list's - I'm not quite that anal but I do keep a few lists including a little unknown list (well, it was unknown) of self-found birds on the patch and this recently hit a new high of 88% with the addition of Nightingale now on that list - does anybody else do this?

The calculation is quite simple really (in Excel) just divide your self-found list by your patch list.

Wanstead list currently stands on 145
Self-found list currently stands on 128

128/145 = 88% (that's rounded down, 88.28% if you really want to be accurate).

For a patch that is heavily covered by numerous people all day, every day (and this appears to be growing year on year) I'd say having a self-found rating of 88% of my total patch list is quite remarkable, but please let me know if I'm blowing my own trumpet here as I have no idea how this compares to any other birders and their patches.

Here's the list of 17 birds I've not self-found and apart from Rustic BuntingOrtolan Bunting and Slavonian Grebe all the others, although scarce on the patch are potentially gettable and would help to improve my percentage rating and could even nudge this into the 90% region!

Red-Crested Pochard
Pheasant
Waxwing
Smew
Black Redstart
Cuckoo
Lapland Bunting
Slavonian Grebe
Red-legged Partridge
Cetti's Warbler
Ortolan Bunting
Great White Egret
Black-tailed Godwit
Red-backed Shrike
Rustic Bunting
Garganey
Greenshank

Male, Spring, London
If I could find an Autumn Garganey on the patch this would certainly help increase my % rating.
This male (not found by me) spent the morning on Jubilee pond back in March 2019.

There is one problem (although it's a very nice problem) If I add a patch tick to the list and I'm not the finder my percentage rating drops, as I say it's not a big problem as everyone loves to add a new bird to their patch list regardless of who found it. I also find that keeping a self-found list does keep me interested and fully motivated when I'm out on the patch, I suppose we all have different motivations and goals when out birding and my little unknown list certainly adds a little dimension and keeps me entertained.

The Speez of a Tree Pipit

It's funny how seeing just one bird of note can turn around a mornings patch birding.

I'd seen Spotted  Flycatcher, a flyover Yellow WagWillow Warbler and a family group of three Hobby which was all standard fare for Wanstead but it wasn't anything to write home about (or Blog about) especially as we're now heading towards the end of August when expectations are always running a little high, but whilst standing in the north end of the Brooms with Bob and Marco I picked out the distinctive harsh flight call of a Tree Pipit overhead. It only called the once but that was good enough to stick it on the year list - which is limping along! The three of us did a quick recce through the long grass and sure enough I found the bird perched up on one of the few remaining burnt and chard trees left in the Brooms - calling the guys over, we all enjoyed some cracking views of one of my favourite passage migrants as it sheltered from the gusty wind, remnants of yesterdays storm 'Ellen'.

Following last weekends Nightingale and today's Tree Pipit finding just a single decent bird amongst the usual passage and breeding species can so often make the difference to your day when birding a local patch.

I've seen a few passage Tree Pipits at Wanstead but they don't typically show as well as this one!

Dreaming of a Rare Ficedula

Autumn arrived in the shape of not one but two Pied Flycatchers on the patch Sunday, these were my 13th & 14th records for Wanstead and my earliest here by two days. As much as I love seeing a Pied Fly on the patch, my thoughts were side-tracked by the possibility of a bigger prize - Semi or Collared Flycatcher!

Having seen both Flycatchers well, constantly flitting between the Silver Birches and Lyme Trees in the SSSI there was no doubt both birds were your standard autumn Pied Fly's but there's no harm in dreaming and it goes without saying, double checking - especially as a day later there was a Collared Flycatcher at Spurn.

Here are a couple of photos of Sunday's Pied Flycatchers followed by my dream find...

Juvenile Yellow-legged Gull - Nailed!

It's taking a bit a longer than I'd hoped but I've finally nailed a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull on the patch this summer.

Whilst the bread-chucking Thames Larophiles have been enjoying these brutes for over a month now, us inland patch birders have had to bide our time. You would think being just a stones throw away from the Thames (4 miles in a straight line as the Gull flies) juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls would be easier to come by at Wanstead but despite hours of coverage there are usually only a couple of records each summer - which makes finding one amongst the semi-resident large Gull population that frequent Alexandra Lake taste just that little bit sweeter!

Mothing

Those of you who follow my exploits on Twitter might have noticed a big upturn in tweets regarding Moths in the last few months! This is not a new passion but an old one that has re-surfaced again and was aided by being furloughed and locked-down for 3 months, which gave me the time and opportunity I've been missing for a few years (basically before the kids came along) to re-engage all things Lepidoptery - and I'm loving it!

The early morning starts have been a bit tougher since I've returned to work but the blood-shot eyes and lack of sleep is all worth it when you're rewarded with a new moth for the garden list - This currently stands on 128 for the year. In Moth terms it's not a particularly big total but it does go to show what's possible with a simple Skinner Moth Trap in a urban London garden with a little bit of sacrifice and effort.

Here are a few the highlights of the Marcos so far, nothing out of the ordinary but a good cross-section of Moths - If you're lucky I might even do another post with some of the Micros!
