Thursday / Friday

It is with regret that I have to inform you that the paved area most loved by visiting (and regular) birders has departed. God knows why. Severn Trent must have thought it was dangerous and fearing a law suit have removed it and replaced it with grass. So no more getting out of your car in carpet slippers and viewing the Reservoir in comfort any more.

Bird wise – the weather has probably been too good. Although last night four Shelduck flew in at dusk to roost. There was a single singing Chiffchaff and a Meadow Pipit but little else.

A trip over on Saturday proved unproductive there were around three singing Chiffchaffs but the site was heaving with people.

Coleshill Quarry was quiet as well but there were a couple of Green Sandpipers and two (or another couple) Snipe.
