|Redwing in freezing conditions at Bookham Common today.|
It's a short trip on along the M25 to Bookham Common, a National Trust site famously home to a long-running London Natural History Society flora and fauna survey. I negotiated some icy lanes and by-ways before finally hitting the right location, thanks to directions from Johnny Allan, and met up again with Neil Randon (aka Factor), who alarmingly seems to be acquiring the new nickname of Dipper (I first met him at Chertsey in the summer, when we both missed a Hoopoe - so he has form).
