A 'Betwixtmas' break in Norfolk to visit family had me on a twitch for EASTERN YELLOW WAGTAIL, which I found on the second attempt after visiting the wrong dung heap the evening before! After the wagtail I saw lots of winter geese in Sherborne, & the next day I saw even more geese & plenty of other species first-thing at RSPB Snettisham. I ended the year with a Woodcock as I returned from the coast with the family.
