November 21st 2010

The Barn Owl near Grandborough this morning treated Dave and I to exceptional display as it hunted in front of us for 30 minutes down to 10 feet, there was little else about so moved on to Draycote Water where it was bitterly cold due to the north easterly wind.
Unfortunately a big sailing race was on this weekend so most of the duck had been disturbed, 140 Lapwing and 3 male Goosander was all that we could manage.
Napton on the Hill produced 50 Skylark, 80 Stock Dove, 250 Redwing, 150 Fieldfare, 6 Mistle Thrush and Great-spotted Woodpecker.
Sorry to say I preferred an afternoon under the duvet than looking for Waxwing at Brandon Marsh so gave them a miss – always tomorrow.
