Osprey & Grass Snake

Arrived at Draycote Water where there was a single Black Tern out in the centre while the highlight of this early morning visit was an Osprey which flew in to toft bay at 8:15 then headed south before turning to the east. Also noted were 3 Yellow Wagtail and 3 Wheatear.
After breakfast we looked for butterflies at Harbury Spoil Bank finding 7 Dingy Skipper 7 Peacock Large White, Speckled Wood and a very nice specimen of Green Hairstreak while Napton on the Hill had Holly Blue, Common Blue 2 and Peacock.
Napton Reservoir had Common Sandpiper and Wheatear along with brief views of 2 Grass Snake and Blue-tailed Damselfly were just emerging.
