The realisation that Cuddesdon really is the worst place in the UK to search for migrant birds tipped me over the edge, and I nearly fell off the Western Palearctic, only stopping at Svalbard, high in the Arctic:

But it wasn't all summer plumaged Red Phalaropes (you simply can't call them Grey Phalaropes when you see them like this - I've actually ticked Red as a separate species from Grey, specifically to annoy the listers), Long-tailed Skuas, Little Auks, Brunnich's Guillemots, Sabine's Gulls and Ivory Gulls... we did see the odd mammal as well...
