another Brent

Arrived at Draycote Water 7:30 to find a juvenile Brent Goose off farborough bank but alas it left at 7:40 to the SW before we could get any closer. A walk to the inlet produced 6f &2m Goosander, a few Goldeneye, juv male Red-crested Pochard in rainbow corner and 8 Tree Sparrow around the feeders. Although there was little visible migration two large flocks surprised us with 2000 Starling over at 7:45 and 400 Fieldfare over rainbow at 8:30. After a flock of 300 Fieldfare flew over us at Southam we gave Napton on the Hill a look but apart from 50 Blackbird and a few Redwing, Fieldfare and Chaffinches around the churchyard we saw little else.
