2004 SIGHTINGS
If 2003 was a remarkable year then 2004 was staggering A grand total of 175 Species were seen, the equal highest ever total but with with three first records including a first  “Avon” record. The new additions included Subalpine Warbler and Temminck’s Stint in May, followed by Rose-coloured Starling in September. Other major rarities included Great Grey Shrike, Cory’s Shearwater, Shorelark, Spoonbill, Avocet, Bearded Tits, Common (Mealy) Redpoll, Kentish Plover, exceptional flocks of Pomarine Skuas and a spring Sabine’s Gull. Other scarcities included Lapland Bunting, Leach’s Petrel, Garganey, 2 Wood Warblers, Blue-headed Wagtail, multiple Grasshopper Warblers, a Ring Ouzel, 2 Pied Flycatchers and several Firecrests.

Once again there were some disappointments, with no reports of Greylag Goose, Goldeneye, Snow Bunting or Purple Sandpiper. Only one Little Stint was seen this year.

Overall a year that will be hard to beat for the variety and quality of birds.
