January 23rd 2011

We finally caught up with Barn Owl on the patch this morning with one in the valley near Grandborough plus 20 Linnet, Green Woodpecker and 100 Fieldfare plus 7 Hares. A Buzzard showed well and a few more Fieldfare as we chatted to Cym along Flecknoe Road.
After breakfast the weather became gloomy with occasional light drizzle so apart from a bit of birding at Wormleighton Reservoir we concentrated on checking out the railway line for decent viewing spots between Cropredy and Bishop Itchington.
Wormleighton had 15 Tree Sparrow, Marsh Tit, 6 Reed Bunting, Raven, Buzzard and 2 Brambling and on the way home a quick look at Napton Reservoir produced 5 Mute Swan, Snipe, 6 Pochard, male Wigeon, male Shoveler and a tame adult Herring Gull.
