December 27th 2010

Took a leaf out of JJs book and though the rivers in my neck of the wood are more like glorified streams it paid off with Jack Snipe and 7 Snipe found searching various stretches of the River Leam between Thurlaston Bridge and Beck Hill in the Grandborough valley plus a Woodcock feeding out in the open.
Plenty of Redwing and Fieldfare in the hedgerows and 4 Waxwing on apples in the orchard in the hamlet of Toft.

Those close to me will be aware of my mothers long illness which sadly she succumbed too this afternoon – my thanks and appreciation go to the staff at Overslade House, Rugby who gave her the dignity and care she deserved.
