Wednesday 28th January
Looks like Emile Heskey might be an inspired aquisition for the Villa, but time will tell. For those who dont like football not much to report. I'm trying hard to see all the regular resident breeding birds in Warwickshire by the end of the month. At the moment I reckon I'm 3 short : Cetti's warbler(although I have heard one), Corn Bunting and Long eared Owl. I'm not sure about Curlew and Crossbill.
Anyway, in daylight little better than the light from those Save the Planet lightbulbs we're forced to use, the search for birds continued. I thought I might find some winter flocks around Eathorpe and Wappenbury. Birds seen, excluding 'garden' species : Great spotted Woodpecker, Nuthatch, Fieldfare c80, Redwing c15, Bullfinch, Greenfinch c20, Yellowhammer, Common Snipe 3, Common Buzzard, Meadow Pipit (110)
The images of foxes at Brandon were taken yesterday, included to brighten up a very dull day.
