Buzzards & Jays are coming

Knew there was a sponsored something going on but forgot they would be setting up early so Draycote Waters farborough bank was busy when we arrived at 7.30am so had no other option than give hensborough bank a quick check then scarper before the hoards arrived. Greenshank still present but mobile plus single Little Egret, Kingfisher and female Shoveler while overhead we had 4 Grey Wagtail go over together south plus a few mipits. Car park nearly full when we left. The only vis mig from Napton on the Hill was 5 Skylark and 20+ Swallows heading south west and 3 Cormorant and 4 duck sp going north. Napton Reservoir still had the Whinchat plus 5 Shoveler, 2 Wigeon, 3 Jay, 2 Chiffchaff and single Willow Warbler which was tucked in with 22 Long-tailed Tits while overhead there were 5 Buzzard and 2 Raven. As we were just about to leave we found another 15 Buzzard soaring together very high up north of the car park and they drifted of east – may have been migrants. Comma and Red Admiral seen here. Four Sparrowhawks over the garden this afternoon including 3 together plus 2 Raven, 2 Buzzard (locals) and 5 Jays north between 4&5pm.
