March 23rd 2012

Called in on Lawford Heath after a heads up from JJ regarding an Iceland Gull on the tip but we missed it though we did find a second winter Med Gull among many Black-headed Gulls following a nearby plough.
A Brimstone butterfly was seen near Wolston but Brandon Marsh was very quiet with only 15 Snipe, 4 Oystercatcher, 2 Shelduck, 2 Redshank, Goldeneye and Chiffchaff plus a Comma worth mentioning. As we approached Church Lawford on our way home JJ rang again with 3 Iceland’s on the tip so diverted through Rookery Farm managing to see near adult bird with some black in its lower tertials on its left hand side which has been seen a few times in the Draycote roost.
Another call from JJ late afternoon had me searching for a Red Kite as it drifted over Rugby but I had no luck.
