11th January and a morning in Hants.

An early morning run down to Hampshire was rewarded with two lifers with Spanish Sparrow and Dark Eyed Junco. 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 Essex. Moving on to Hawkhill Inclosure in the New Forest I located the Junco quickly in flight and again as it came into the trees in front of another crowd of birders. I also bagged Coal Tit, Crossbill, Goldcrest and a Woodlark here too so a new total of 128
