This unseasonal drake GARGANEY was present on the River Stour at Shapwick (Dorset) on 10 February and photographed by Peter Coe.

With the finding of a drake GARGANEY in Dorset during the week, and confirmation of LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER, with a bird for a second day at Maer Lake, Bude Marshes, in North Cornwall, the total number of species recorded in Britain and Ireland this year is just nudging 250 at 249.
