The longest twitch

Well it's finally been accepted!

The Chinese Pond Heron at Hythe that we reluctantly twitched on 2nd March 2014 has today been added to the BOU list and as such becomes bird 375 on my life list and drags the 2014 up to 271.

Good news too that the Hooded Merganser on my list seems to have been accepted by the BBRC.

And to add to the fun the Slaty-backed Gull at Rainham that I dipped has also been accepted and I'm left regretting the dip on it at the local patch but congratulate those that did connect. I was there looking through the fence at the rubbish tip when people were seeing it but just couldn't say I'd actually seen it so it remains on the dipped list for me.
