Snakes & Scoter

I spent the day with the Phillips gang seeing 2 juvenile Wheatear, Buzzard and male Common Scoter at Draycote Water (scoter been present since 31st FF)  At least 10 Long-tailed Tit, Green Woodpecker and 2 Raven on Napton on the Hill while Napton Reservoir had Snipe and 7 Teal. Other sightings at Napton Reservoir included a probable Mink flushed off the bank, 2 Water Vole and 3 Grass Snake (different locations to last visit) including one that had recently shed its skin while insects included Meadow Brown and Common Blue butterflies, and Dragonflies represented by Brown Hawker, Southern Hawker, Common Blue Damselfly and Common Darter.
