Thursday 2nd June
Havent done much birding this week for one reason or another but did manage to miss a Red necked Phalarope at Shustoke last Sunday. Apparently it was missed by everybody except the guys on the safety boat at the sailing club who even photographed it. I'm trying to get hold of the photo to verify the record. I also missed a Red Kite over Ridge Lane, Atherstone. If I'd been sitting in the Church End Brewery garden rather than in the porch I would have seen it and been able to add it to my - birds I've seen while having a pint list. C'est la vie.
