26th January 2021: Banstead Woods, Mark Stanley


Bird seen from my house in Old Oak Avenue which overlooks Banstead Woods.
Single Whooper Swan observed flying NNE at approx 100 metres above treeline - Fringe of Banstead Woods above Parsons Land/Stagbury Field.
Time 14.46pm. Weather overcast but light good. Bird not silhouetted and observed with bins to confirm species.
Patch record and rare bird for Surrey. Thanks to my location its also a garden tick :)
