Saturday 27 February – Stag Night

Spent the morning around the Reservoir, there wasn’t too much going on although the Wigeon flock has risen to the heady heights of six birds! This is a long way down on the 80 or so from ten years ago but a significant improvement on the last few years where there have only been one or two birds.

Birds were starting to show a bit of interest in breeding with a lot of birds singing and looking to rather frisky especially a pair of Treecreeper around the small pool.

I spent the afternoon indulging in sport – watching the Rugby then the Albion who were impressive in the first have and the complete opposite in the second!

I then attended Steve Cawthrays stag night where the great and the good of Warwickshire birding were on hand. We were all supplied with Del Boy face masks and entered Dreamers Indian Restaurant where it would have been nice if Jellied Eel Madras had been on the menu! The food was excellent as was the company and even some of the other tables joined in the fun. The banter was something I have missed since finishing work and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

The UK’s oldest groom! Or is it John Merrick!
