Dull, Drab, Dreary, Dark and Disappointing Daventry Country Park!

It must be several months since I ventured out to Daventry Country Park, one of my favourite waters, so I decided that this would be my destination for a few hours this morning. The title of this post sums up the light this morning which was disappointing! The most disappointing part was the noise from a new housing development only yards below the dam. Obviously governments, councils, developers and greedy land owners cannot bare to see green fields and farm land. One day we will run out of food and the cry will be "why can't we grow our own ?" You cannot eat bricks and concrete!

Some good news in the form of some new scrapes and settling pools! Should hopefully be good for waders!

The birds were good though!

Red Necked Grebe; Willow Tit; Common Sandpiper; Grey Wagtail; Greenshank; plus of course, the expected species.

And this afternoon..................................the sun shone in a blue sky!
