Draycote Water could only offer up 300 Swift, 2 Common Tern, Grey Wagtail and a few warblers this morning. Two hours looking across the valley from the country park produce – zilch. Nearby the first Green-veined Orchids are starting to flower. By the time I left there were plenty of butterflies about though they were mainly whites and my first Large Red Damselfly showed in toft shallows. This afternoon it was more sky watching off the Dunchurch ridge but little going over.
Doing another walk tomorrow so your more then welcome but bring your wet gear as the weather could be awful but on the good side the wind should be in the south east.
Mark Phillips had 20 Yellow Wagtail tonight and 4 Fox cubs.
