I woke to good numbers in the trap again although the species count was down with Double-striped Pug new for year and my earliest record. The garden year list stands at 20 but I wish I could have one of these beauties that Brian trapped in his Dunchurch garden and brought round early this evening for confirmation. Bob managed a record shot in fading light using flash.
Dotted Chestnut, Dunchurch
On the birding front Draycote Water was far too busy with walkers etc so gave it a miss and checked on Napton Reservoir managing Green Sandpiper on the small reservoir, 2 Cetties Warbler, 6 Reed Bunting, Chiffchaff, 2 Raven, Sparrowhawk and 4 Buzzard while Napton on the Hill had female Brambling, 12 Redwing, 3 Chiffchaff, 2 Great-spotted Woodpecker, 4 Goldcrest, 5 Mistle Thrush and Little Owl.
Cawston Waxwings still grace the estate with up to 70+ seen today.
