Unfortunately, it was a fruitless effort, spending a good half hour searching along with Chris Mathews. That said as I pen this post I see the bird has just appeared on the Warwickshire Whatsapp Group, you can't win them all.

The remainder of my time was spent once more at Stockton Cutting, this time in the sunshine. It was a decent visit recording my 1st Local Hairy Dragonflies (3) and Green Hairstreaks (4), plus more Dingy Skippers, a Holly Blue and a Four-spotted Chaser, which simply wouldn't settle.
Tomorrow I'll be putting the final touches to my itinerary in preparation for Saturdays departure for the Spanish Pyrenees and my quest for a self-found Wallcreeper goes on, simply can't wait.
