August 7th 2010

Despite a late night I was out again before dawn searching for owls around Calcutt managing single Barn and Little Owl before moving on to Napton Reservoir where a juvenile Spotted Flycatcher was along the entrance road. Also present were 2 Common Tern, 4 Reed, 2 Cettie’s, 4 Willow Warbler, Whitethroat, 3 Reed Bunting and a Jay.
Napton on the Hill had a juvenile Wheatear on the road leading to the Windmill, a very elusive Grasshopper Warbler in the quarry, Spotted Flycatcher in the churchyard along with Coal Tit, Mistle Thrush, Whitethroat, and Chiffchaff while a prolonged watch over the area towards the Burton Dassett hills produced 9 Ravens and 13 Buzzard.

The unidentified moth pic of the 29th July blog has been identified as a worn Small Ranuculus by the county recorder David Brown and buddy Dave also had one two days prior to mine and just as worn so we both have garden ticks.
