April 2nd

Arrived mid morning, after being side tracked by a long over due Warwickshire (and tame valley) tick. After plenty of movement yesterday through Draycote, I was hoping the res might have something a little more unusual this morning. A Curlew circled the main pool at 9:20. 1 swallow, 2 Sand Martin and 40 Fieldfare flew north. Other species noted were Blackcap, Reed Bunting and 3 RL Partridge. Alas not even 1 Black necked Grebe, you would have thought we could have borrowed 1 of the Draycote 7 for the day, even the 1 that hadn't finished moulting yet would have done!
