February 18th 2011

Last few days have been manic and only just getting the time to play catch up with the cyber world.
A dull overcast afternoon at Brandon Marsh produced 3 Buzzard, 2 Oystercatcher, 6 Shelduck, 10 Snipe, 2 Nuthatch and a Coal Tit while on the way home 3 Corn Bunting were on Lawford Heath along with 4 Buzzard.

Earlier we looked for the Bewick’s Swan between Bretford and Church Lawford but the remaining 61 Mute Swans were distant and could not be located.

Keith did well on Wednesday to have 3 Bewick’s fly over Napton Reservoir where he also had a Stonechat and Dave hit the jackpot when he arrived at his place of work mid-morning in Butlers Leap, Rugby on Wednesday finding 30+ Waxwings perched outside his office window – had been over a 100 earlier - they did not stay long and have not been seen since.
