Tranquil shank

With the perimeter road at Draycote Water still closed this morning our walk was very tranquil and productive with Greenshank, Common Sandpiper, Snipe, 2 Kingfisher, 2 Little Egret, 2 Great-spotted Woodpecker, Wheatear, Grey Wagtail, Chiffchaff and 56 Teal.
Whinchat still at Napton Reservoir while a roving tit flock contained Chiffchaff, Goldcrest and 6 Long-tailed Tit. Other species of interest here included 2 Hobby, 2 Wigeon, Teal, 4 Raven, 4 Buzzard and Jay plus Weasel, Peacock, Silver Y and Red Admiral. Napton on the Hill had 15 Raven and 2 Buzzards over the windmill as the breeze picked up and 5 Teal flew north.
