Buzz Off...........

Picture by Dan.
A few new in warblers around today. Met up with Dan and we spent a while at the pylons looking for Osprey, alas we were out of luck though we had our first Blackcap of the day. Also a Raven and Buzzard were scrapping it out and giving a good aerial display. Plenty of Meadow Pipits, Wheatear 1 and Swallow 3 a few a Sand Martin.

After a bout of heavy rain we headed back to Freeman’s, where we saw a Willow Warbler, possibly 2, and another Blackcap, plenty of Chiffchaff in the woods. On the pools were a couple Gadwall, Goldeneye, Tufted Duck, Little Egret, Little Grebe, Coot, Moorhen, Shelduck and a few Lapwing and Oystercatcher earlier. Other raptors seen were Sparrowhawk, Kestrel, Peregrine and another Buzzard.
