February 25th 2011

First Badger of the year seen as we were coming home from the pub last night – scurrying across the road near Princethorpe.
While Bob added Oystercatcher and Curlew this morning at Draycote Water to similar birds we having been seeing all week I was doing me domestics managing 300 Fieldfare heading north over Sainsbury’s and a Coal Tit in the garden
Weather deteriated this afternoon so Dave and I did not see a lot at Brandon Marsh - 17 Snipe, 3 Shelduck and a Coal Tit but a look at Lawford Heath late afternoon produced 150 Chaffinch, 4 Corn Bunting and 30 Yellowhammer spread across a couple of stubble fields.
While Bob was at the pond the Air Ambulance had to be called out and the picture shows the skills there pilot have to use on our behalf.

Max kindly sent me a couple of shots of yesterdays dog trash
