Plenty at the pond

After yesterday’s morning rain which the only bird of note was a day-flying Barn Owl along the west side of the old Railway Station at Flecknoe then today was in total contrast. Started the morning out early looking at the Orion Nebula which was brilliant through the scope with a Little Owl for company then it was a walk to the inlet at Draycote Water with Dave in minus conditions with mist lifting off the surface. Plenty to see with Little Egret in the inlet channel, at least 14 Goosander (4m) 120 Golden Plover over heading north, 80 Stock Dove, 15 Tree Sparrow, 80 Yellowhammer, Great-spotted Woodpecker, Lesser Redpoll, 3 Raven, Peregrine, Goldcrest, 6 Reed Bunting and 10 Long-tailed Tit. Unfortunately very little seen in the valley or at Napton Reservoir.
