April 15th 2011

On our way to Wormleighton for the “princess” this morning Bob and I decided to call in on the pond for a brief look at farborough bank as the conditions looked cracking for migrants and soon located 2 newly arrived White Wagtail among 8 Yellow Wagtail and 2 male Wheatear.
On arrival at Wormleighton we had a bit of spare time so checked out the reservoir and found a Whitethroat and 5 Tree Sparrow then our second Osprey of the year came in head on and looked as if it was thinking of fishing but the local crows pushed it off.

Princess Elizabeth came rattling past going hell for leather and faster than expected so my shot doesn’t do her justice (bottom) (Bob Hazell middle and Alan Anscomb top).

The journey to the Just So café at Napton produced 12 Orange-tip and 4 Brimstone then it was back to the pond but the temperature had dropped and there was not a lot going on.
Later after meeting with Terry, Mo, Paul and Martin we trawled the Grandborough valley but all we could find was a flock of Yellowhammers.
