Draycote Water


STOP PRESS

Great White Egret
briefly at 1500 before being flushed and not relocated

(reported just as I got home!)


My previous posts today have taken a different view over Draycote Water! Eventually, the fog cleared and a pleasant day ensued. However, I was rather limited as to what I could capture with the camera so was grateful for a number of obliging Bullfinches.

In the trees below Draycote Bank c14 Grey Herons graced the top of a tree



Best birds included six Goldeneye, six Goosander, one Rock Pipit on Farborough Spit, one Grey Wagtail on Draycote Bank and three Raven over. While standing on Farborough Bank, Golden Plover could be heard but not located.
