June 21st 2011

Draycote Water had a little more to offer this morning when Bob and I wandered down to toft shallows in blustery conditions. There were 2 Common Tern, 2 Oystercatchers, Little Ringed Plover and adult Yellow-legged Gull plus 300 Swifts, 44 Mute Swan, 200+ Canada Geese, 2 Buzzard and juv Garden Warbler. The Bee Orchids are still showing thought the majority of the Common-spotted Orchids have been accidently mowed with only a couple left untouched. Only other highlight was a Stoat and a Southern Hawker.
