Brief look around on the way to and from. Alvecote - Mill pool - Common Tern 6, Lesser Whitethroat. At Laundry Lane the Common Redstart was still present in hedge running parallel to the Lane, viewable from metal gate at end of Lane. Also Whitethroat, Mistle thrush, Treecreeper, and Green Woodpecker. At Middleton there were 6 Green Sandpipers round the lake and a Turtle Dove was heard in the wood opposite the new viewing point overlooking the silt pool. On Fishers Mill a Little Egret and Hobby flew over. Near Nuneaton another Hobby was seen along the A5 near the Higham on the Hill roundabout.
