I needed to be at the local garage for 8:30am for the wife's MOT so only had the briefest search of the adjacent fields for the earlier Whimbrel or indeed anything else of interest. The distant call of an Oystercatcher over towards Napton Reservoir, Yellowhammer and Chiffchaff birds of note.
After breakfast, I began at Napton Reservoir where I bumped into Peter Finden and then Richard Mays and Dave Cox, who I spent the next 45 minutes with. A single Shelduck, Blackcap and a couple of Chiffchaffs, plus a Raven over harassing a Buzzard, a dozen or so Swallow and a couple of House Martins were the best on offer.
