The Barn Owl and Stonechat were in the field next to the Kites Hardwick Golf Range and across the road in the back garden of the house adjacent to the entrance of Draycote Water a male Brambling in almost summer plumage was showing well along with Willow and Coal Tit. Country Park had 52 Redwing and 40 Fieldfare but the main reservoir was pretty quiet in the strong blustery south winds. Most of yesterdays duck had moved on with the Red-necked Grebe off farborough bank, male Smew had moved to draycote bank and 3 Great-northern Divers out in centre thou difficult to see in the conditions. Gave up on any chance of doing roost when gusts reached well over 30mph with heavy rain mid-afternoon.
Satellite in my trap last night.
