May 7th 2009

Yet another mild blustery night gusting over 25mph accompanied by drizzle early morning becoming brighter and warmer later but no sooner than I arrived at Draycote Water I wished I was somewhere else. Sorry folk this wind is getting me down and it’s not bringing in much. Managed Yellow Wagtail, Grey Wagtail, Reed Warbler and 800 Swift before I gave in and did me garden. Bob Hazell took this excellent shot of Ringed Plover

Ringed Plover
My garden trap had Cabbage Moth and Dagger species (you have to check its bits to separate grey from dark)

Dagger species
A quick look at the valley this evening with Dave on our way to the pub produced 14 Stock Dove and two Buzzard.
