Draycote Water, Napton Reservoir and Brandon Marsh

Dave and I managed Yellow Wagtail, adult Yellow-legged Gull and 1000s of Swifts on our walk out to farborough spit this morning as the rain poured down before moving on to Napton Reservoir which had a female Tufted Duck with 6 very young ducklings. Sun finally came out after breakfast giving us a chance to dry out and Brandon Marsh had summer plumage Black-tailed Godwit on east marsh while other species seen included 100+ Chimney Sweeper, Meadow Brown, Light Emerald 6 Bee Orchids, Grass Snake and Toad. Last night garden trap had Barred Red, Elephant Hawk-moth and Straw Dot.
