November 22nd 2009

Out with Dave this morning down the Grandborough Valley looking for owls managing Little Owls at Woolscott and Millholme Bridge while after dawn we saw 3 Buzzard and very good numbers of Fieldfare and Redwing with 500 of each.
Draycote Water had the Great-northern Diver and Green-winged Teal but little else apart from 3 Goosander, 13 Gadwall and Grey Wagtail while Brandon Marsh produced 6 Snipe, 80 Shoveler, Kingfisher, 2 Sparrowhawk, Coal Tit, Willow Tit and near the visitors centre a group of finches included at least 30+ Siskin and 10 Lesser Redpoll with a possible Mealy Redpoll but the light was very poor. We ended the morning on Lawford Heath with 4 Tree Sparrow around the buildings of Rookery Hall Farm.
