Started at the Anchor near Hartshill and checked the bushes and pastures next to the Coventry canal, unfortunately I didnt go as far as the riding stables where a Redstart was found later in the day. The old slag heaps at Piccadilly was the next spot but only produced Skylark and Meadow pipit. Fortunes changed at Coton pools with an Arctic tern and a large flock of Sand Martin and Swallows. At Kingsbury Water Park there was nothing of note on the larger pools and just a couple of Little Egret and a single Little ringed plover Cetti's warbler and Willow Tit on Cliff pool.
