May 15th 2011

The day started bright but soon became overcast and breezy again.
The grassy field down Southam Rd had Red-legged Partridge, 2 Whitethroat, 6 Graylag and Yellowhammer while in the Grandborough valley we found 6 Tree Sparrow along Flecknoe Rd and 6 Yellow Wagtail, 4 Yellowhammer and a few Lapwing at Grandborough Fields.
Draycote Water despite the wind was poor and all we managed was a Yellow Wagtail and Common Tern before calling in at the Long Itch Diner.
The weather was not going to improve but still felt Harbury was worth a visit finding 3 Raven, 6 Grizzled Skipper, 2 Dingy Skipper, Common Blue, Treble-line, 2 Treble Bar, Lesser Treble Bar, 4 Cinnabar and 6 Crambus lathoniellus before the final rain shower pushed us off to try out the caramel meringues at the Just So – strongly recommended.
Afterwards we tried Stockton again but the cool wind meant we were wasting our time all we had was a Hairy Dragonfly.
