Good day Friday, joined SH at Hartshill Hayes viewpoint for a spot of Vis migging. He'd already had a several hundred Woodpigeons over and a good many Thrushes. We watched for 2 hours as more groups of Redwing and Fieldfare flew over.Well over 1000 birds passed over but the best for me was a male Goshawk, a long awaited first for Warwickshire. Being close to home I went back to warm up and have some lunch but it wasnt long before I was heading out again. This time to Shustoke Res.where SH had found a Red breasted Merganser. Who said there werent any birds in Warks.? Having said that I did pay a quick visit to Blithfield yesterday to see 2 Whooper Swans. They were very vocal in Blithe Bay just before they left at about noon.
Hi,I've lived and worked in Warwickshire all my life, now retired my lifelong interest in wildlife is now my main hobby. Birding in particular both local, national and in the Western Palearctic region is a major interest. I am very happily married to Jan and have two great kids Rachel and Paul,and 2 beautiful grandchildren
