Draycote Water

Thurlaston village landmarks from Draycote Water


This morning, the super human (me!) braved an early morning visit to Draycote Water, in the hope of seeing Wheatear. I was, of course to be disappointed but other birds were more obliging, in seasonally fresh conditions! The long staying drake Smew was off Farborough Spit and three Oystercatchers were mobile along Farborough Bank. Toft shallows had three Chiffchaff, Goldcrest and Treecreeper

Considering the weather we are having that's not a bad collection Kevin.
