Draycote Water

Great Northern Diver

A pleasant morning with sunshine but a seasonally fresh breeze met me at Draycote Water this morning. Overnight rain giving way to clearing skies and an early morning frost did not bode well for anything new at Draycote, but it was good to meet up with a few long staying "friends". The Great Northern Diver was still showing well along Farborough Bank, but today favoured the stretch between the spit and Toft shallows. Toft shallows again enabled views of the albino Squirrel, but it seemed reluctant to leave its nest box home. Toft also held a single Chiffchaff and Treecreeper. Not a lot to see, but nice to enjoy a bracing walk!
