March 5th 2010

I was out with Dave this afternoon meeting up with Colin at Brandon Marsh and there was no sign of the Bewick’s Swan at Church Lawford when we searched for it.
Brandon was sunny and quiet with 12 Snipe, 62 Shoveler, 2 Shelduck and a Redshank while a short walk around the rest of the reserve produced calling Water Rail, Cetties Warbler, 6 Long-tailed Tit, 4 Buzzard and small parties of Redwing and Fieldfare. Luckily Bob Hazell saved the day finding a Red-necked Grebe at Draycote Water off the inlet which got a few county year listers over and with the male Smew and Great-northern Divers still present should get a few others out tomorrow.
