November 5th 2010

Today’s visit to Draycote Water was ruined by heavy rain with only 2 Redwing, 20 Meadow Pipits, Song Thrush and male Goldeneye seen along farborough bank before giving up and a flock of 200+ Fieldfare resting in trees at Grandborough Fields Farm were the only birds of note in the Grandborough valley.
Bob had come round earlier to photograph last nights catch, I’m quiet chuffed with the Dark Chestnut as it was one of the species highlighted on my moth course this week and Bob re-identified a Grey Shoulder-knot resting on a fence post that I had casually dismissed as a Blair’s – oops wasn’t wearing my glasses - at least the boy is learning.
