April 7th 2012

This mornings damp overcast conditions were ideal for keeping yesterdays migrants down so I was out checking the high ground with Pete, Dave and Chris finding a male Ring Ousel at Stoneton and another between Burton Dassett and Avon Dassett with a female over Gredenton Hill where up to five still remain. Also seen were Wheatear, 4 Golden Plover and 3 Fieldfare while 2 Raven were over Marston Doles and another 3 seen from Napton on the Hill which was surprisingly quiet with only 2 Buzzard, Willow Warbler and a calling Yellow Wagtail.
A brief look at Napton Reservoir where there were Goldeneye, 2 Swallow and a Grey Wagtail but decided to give up on the pond due to too much disturbance though 2 male Wheatear, female Stonechat male Blackcap and 2 Yellow Wagtail seen from the car park.
