Draycote Water - 3rd December 2014

Goldeneye

An excellent morning at Draycote Water, bright and sunny but a challenging northerlt breeze. It was great to arrive to see the sun rise, captured through this link:

Bird wise it was very quiet with (of note) two Shelduck, five Shoveler, one Little Egret and a Chiffchaff. Numbers of expected species seemed quite low, unless of course, they were all located between Rainbow Corner and Toft, where I didn't walk! A good chat with Bob Hazell who was doing a complete circuit, but not so with Mr Ignorant Birder who yet again refused to return a cheery greeting!
