Draycote Water - 27th November 2014

Male Kingfisher

With only an hour to spare this afternoon, I headed out to Draycote Water, intending to walk out to Rainbow Corner and back. Close to the fishing lodge, I met Bob Hazell who put me onto the very obliging Kingfisher close to the start of Farborough Bank. He also informed me that two first winter drake Scaup were off the windsurfing area prior to a fishing boat scattering all present. It took a while to relocate but perseverance paid off, with my first of the year. While walking out to Hensborough Bank, a female Kestrel briefly landed on one of the sailing boats. My hour had turned into two and the light was poor so home it was!
