11th January and a morning in Hants.

An early morning run down to Hampshire was rewared by 2 lifers ( my first two for the year) Spanish Sparrow and Dark Eyed Junco. Great little birds....The Sparrow appears to have been around for a while as it has hybrid young. It showed really well to the crowd gathered in the gardens Lee Evans was in attendance along with many faces i've seen around the local patches in was a crowd pleaser as it showed well for the scopes and camers and even the local mayor turned up to see it. Moving on to Hawkhill Inclosure in the New Forest I located the Junco quickly in flight and again as it came in to the trees in front of another crowd of birders. Good views of a good bird...i'm heading off well pleased with the two hours work. (Bagged Coal Tit, Crossbill, Goldcrest and a showey Woodlark here too so a new total of 128
