October 19th 2010

A Snow Bunting over num bum hill at 10:15am saved the day at Draycote Water which until then had been a real crap visit with no sign of lassie among the very few duck present which could be down to a poor food supply due to present low water levels. A possible White Wagtail on farborough bank could not be confirmed before being flushed accidentally by the rangers opening the barrier and not seen again. Our tally included adult Yellow-legged Gull, 50 Meadow Pipit, 300 Starling, 40 Skylark, 4 Buzzard, 1 Pochard, 1 Gadwall, 2 Green Woodpecker and 2 Great-spotted Woodpecker. Also Green-brindled Crescent on one of the visitor centre light and I managed 3 Juniper Carpet in my moth trap
