Friday 9th January

Joy and I decided to go for a walk around Draycote Water today in way of a change. It got of to a great start with a visit to the cafe and a coffee and bacon sandwich, I should do it more often!

Bird wise it was ok I didn’t see any of the geese that had been present but still two Common Scoter, Pintail and Smew isn’t at all shabby. In addition there were four Little Egret, double figures of Tree Sparrow and impressively, over 200 Great Crested Grebe.

By mid afternoon the weather had started to change and with the wind picking up we decided against waiting for the gull roost to develop.
