Friday 10th September

The rain never really materialised, but none the less I ventured forth, it didn’t look very promising at first glance, the Common Tern appear to have moved on, although there were around 60 hirundines hawking insects over the reservoir, but then there were about 60 over my house, and about double that number looking towards Coleshill.

Highlight was undoubtedly the Ringed Plover (120) a first for the year at the Reservoir, I had walked past it first time around. There was also a single Common Sandpiper. Passerines were thin on the ground due to the wind,  but I did have a Blackcap.

Steve Cawthray reported Tawny Owl (119) in the car park in the last week.

Late on there were single Greenshank and Snipe, strangely no Green Sandpiper!
