Swalesmoor

1020 hrs. What a downer; the disappointment was of a magnitude hitherto unknown.
1 Mistle Thrush ditto Meadow Pipit. Several Caawvids and small gulls plus 1 LBBG. Couple Woodpigs, few House Sparrow.
There was one brief respite when I thought I heard the "prrrrreet" (or thereabouts) part of a Lapland Bunting flight call. This immediately brought to mind the bird seen on 15/16 Dec 2009 which I saw and heard several times.
However there were no follow ups and no bird was seen so I daren't risk the ire of local birders being alerted on such flimsy evidence.
