September 12th 2010

Out with Dave down the Grandborough valley looking for owls but did not find any though we did come across 3 Wheatear and 2 Whinchat on a recently ploughed field near Grandborough Fields, also 2 Buzzard, 2 Raven, 16 Goldfinch and 15 Linnet.
Draycote Water gave us 5 Black Tern, Yellow Wagtail and Meadow Pipit before chatting to the Bumbling Bears who had 5 Ringed Plover and 6 Swift earlier.
Took a chance after breakfast to look at Napton on the Hill but it was quiet on the migrant front with only one Spotted Flycatcher and 2 Willow Warbler present but while enjoying the views we found Sparrowhawk, 12 Buzzard and 16 Raven. Plenty of butterflies with Speckled Wood, Comma, Red Admiral and Large White.
