Another, briefer, visit to Uskmouth today. Couldn't relocate the Bittern but only had a very quick look, did stumble onto another Woodcock though. Water Rails are still scattered about all over the place, one pitching into snow in the middle of a field. Slightly more Cetti's today (4-5) but, generally, still thin on the ground; and Fieldfare, Lapwing and Skylark were still trickling over mostly heading west or south.

The Reed Buntings seem to be doing alright but some of the stuff out there is really struggling. Got a new feeder today, hopefully something will take a shine to it, something rare,... Baltimore Oriole would be nice.
