Two laps of Draycote Water, on the bike, this morning! One aim was to obtain images of the sunrise, which was achieved, and can be seen in blog post Sunrise @ Draycote Water
The other aim, of course was to see and photograph the wildlife. A list of sightings can be seen at the end of this post. Of interest, however was a Ruff, viewed near the sailing club; two Common Sandpipers on Farborough Bank; two adult and two juvenile Common Terns; at least seven adult and juvenile Yellow Wagtails; two Grey Wagtails on Farborough Bank; three Green Sandpipers flew into Toft Shallows but were lost in the thick vegetation; two Little Egrets were around the outlet; three female Shoveler; a Peregrine along the north shore and a Raven over. So for Draycote at the moment, a good morning!
