17th July 2011

Most of the weekend taken up with following the La Tour and trying to identify the 32 micros Dave dropped on me lap after his stunning catch on Friday night but managed a few hours out with Dave this morning.
There were Buzzard, Bullfinch and 6 Hares down the Southam Rd before we had a quick walk out to farborough spit at the pond which produced third summer Yellow-legged Gull, adult Dunlin, Little Ringed Plover, Yellow Wagtail and 40 Mute Swan.
Seemed like half of Warwickshires Police Force was in the Long Itch Diner having there breakfast then it was on to Napton on the Hill where there were family parties of Willow Warbler and Spotted Fly, Raven, Green woodpecker and Mistle Thrush while a chat to the Reverend put us on to a few more churchyards worth visiting.
Just So had Whitethroat and Raven and our walk around the garden produced Shaded Broad-bar, Yellow Shell and Beautiful China-marc and at nearby Napton Reservoir we had 2 Yellow Wagtail, Common Tern and many young Sedge and Reed Warblers while chatting to Dave L.
