Oxfordshire Twitching

Rufous Turtle Dove ssp. orientalis
American Wigeon

An early start for the dove this morning and enjoyed cracking views of it as it moved between several gardens in The Leys. Also present; Bullfinch, Brambling, Blackcap, Siskin, Goldfinch. I then left the site when it started to get elusive at 9.45am
Next stop was nearby Rushy Common which held the drake American Wigeon and 2 Smew (both fem). Finally on the way home 42 Red Kites counted along the M40 with one group totalling 31 birds!
