Rock Pipits at Draycote Water

I hadn't been to Draycote Water for quite some time but with Rock pipits moving through the Midlands is was as good a place as any to look for them. It wasnt too difficult to locate the first couple half way along Farborough bank, particularly as the bulk of the Meadow pipit flock seemed prefer the grassy banks below the perimeter road. I counted 6 Rock pipits but another local observer had seen 9 birds in all. There was no sign of the long staying Common Scoter or the 1w Scaup but there were a couple of Goldeneye, several Jays and a couple of hundred Lapwing over the fields
