First up, apologies for managing to delete all my links, its Daisy Mays fault for changing his blog so no-one can find it. Silly Blogger. I'll try to restore them bit by bit. Went to Leicestershire today for a change. Came across Fosse Meadows Nature Park the other day looking for a pub. Its only up the road so I thought I'd check it out. Didnt see much, too many trees for my liking and dogs but they were pretty well behaved dogs.
Anyway, after lunch I headed for more familiar ground, Anchor Meadows, AKA Anchor bushes, AKA Caldecote bushes, AKA the Patch. Birds were generally elusive except the Robins but did find single Spotted Flycatcher, Garden warbler and Common Redstart with a couple of Chiffchaffs Raven overhead and several Blackcaps in the Elderberries nearby. Also saw briefly my first Painted Lady of the year. The abbreviated version of all this can be found on Twitter for those like myself constantly on the go, looking for birds and avoiding gardening and decorating and the like!
