February 12th 2011

Another nice day but nothing new at the pond so once Scaup, Smew, Goosander, Lesser Redpoll and Siskin were seen I check the rangers yard for moths before moving on to Napton Reservoir. Here a Cetties Warbler decided to show it’s self for a couple of minutes but the only other birds of note were 4 Reed Buntings, 3 female Shoveler,4 Pochard, 6 Raven, 7 Bullfinch and 9 Long-tailed Tit.
Bird of the day was the Waxwing near the post office on Napton on the Hill while the churchyard held Nuthatch, Treecreeper, 2 Coal Tit, Great-spotted Woodpecker and 7 Mistle Thrush but very little seen from the windmill apart from Sparrowhawk, Buzzard and 40 Redwing. On the way back home added 3 more Buzzard, Sparrowhawk and 230 Lapwing to the day list.
