February 3rd 2010

I was convinced the forecast was for rain for most of the day so I was pretty niffed to find it dull and dry this morning and me still in my jim jams. Received an e-mail from Steve informing me of a Lesser-spotted Woodpecker behind lin croft point at Draycote Water this morning so that got me out the door but there was no chance it would be still around so decided to search some possible habitat between Thurlaston and Draycote village. Naturally I saw nothing and by the time I reached the valve tower via cycle route 41 from Draycote village the roost was in full swing and beginning to rain. Found one adult winter Med Gull and the will to live. Only other bird of note was a Little Owl along Half Way Lane. Another soaking
