Draycote Water

Only time for a quick visit between snatching a couple of hours sleep and a Doctors review of my newly diagnosed Diabetes. Arriving at 1130, I managed to dodge the showers as I walked to Toft and back. Still with the hope of seeing spring migrants, I only managed five Swallows and four Chiffchaffs. Two Buzzards were distant over Draycote village and two Oystercatchers were in flight over Farborough Bank but not seen to land. Interestingly, the numbers of Pied Wagtails have increased with 43 being counted between the visitor centre and Toft (one way).

One of the many Pied Wagtail's

Mr & Mrs - Tufted Duck

The way I feel! - Great Crested Grebe
