Diary Update #36

A nice stroll with Dee around Napton Reservoir and the locks this afternoon in lovely sunshine.

White Wagtail at Napton Reservoir
Managed to connect with the stunning ♂Common Redstart, found by Richard Mays this morning, which was very flighty near the small open barn as you go through the first gate on the sheep field. No sign of the female Redstart, also seen this morning but to be honest we didn't really do it justice! Also while there a single White Wagtail and Lesser Whitethroat.

Just as we were heading back to the marina news came through of another ♂Common Redstart, this time on the 'Tip' area at Brandon Marsh and found by Paul Cashmore! Now how did I miss that one this morning!
