Lizzy saves the day

Forgot it was the last day of the fishing season at the pond and along with film crews insisting on doing interviews on the shore-line and boats chugging here and there it was a disappointing visit. Shoveler, 15 Red-legged Partridge and 20 Golden Plover was about the best we could find before clearing off to see Liz.
Don’t know what they were putting in her boiler but she flew around the Wormleighton curve like the devil was up her jacksee, pure bliss. She will be hauling THE WORCESTER ANNIVERSARY CHRISTMAS FAYRE from London Paddington to Worcester tomorrow. There were a few Tree Sparrows in the lane and Willow Tit, Great-spotted and Green Woodpecker by the railway crossing but very little on the reservoir.
Brandon Marsh had 13 Reed Bunting, 3 Great-spotted Woodpecker, Green Woodpecker, 2 Kingfisher, Coal Tit and Nuthatch while Lawford Heath was unfortunately covered in mist so nothing of interest.
