March 22nd 2012

I managed 2 Redwing going east over the garden while having poor view of the shed as it went over this morning due to developing mist.
I had arranged to meet up with Mark but we couldn’t find much at the pond with male Goosander, 28 Goldeneye and 8 Buzzard for our efforts while Bob did manage a Ruff by the inlet. The warm weather brought out the butterflies early with Peacock new for the year and single Brimstone.
On our way to Napton we had 2 Brimstone on the Southam Bypass while Napton on the Hill itself was similar to yesterday with Raven, 8 Buzzard, Nuthatch and 2 calling Chiffchaff plus Comma, Small Tortoiseshell and 2 Brimstone.
Woken from my afternoon kip with the offer to visit a local wood for day flying moths managing 4 Light Orange Underwing along with 4 Brimstone, 2 Comma and 2 Small Tortoiseshell plus 4 Great-spotted Woodpecker, 2 Nuthatch, 2 Coal Tit, 2 Treecreeper, Raven and 6 Buzzard.
