Bird of the day was a Redshank at Alvecote Pools, followed by 2 singing Chiffchaff at Coton. Says it all really, migration is on hold. The Waxwings are still in Nuneaton favouring the Poplar behind the houses at the junction of Weddington Road and Castle Road when they are not coming down to feed.
Large flock of finches and Buntings, C200, mainly Chaffinch and Yellowhammers in fields behind Shustoke village and large flocks of Fieldfare still around at several locations. Little Egret, Siskin, Grey Wagtail, Nuthatch, C 100 Golden Plover and 3 Shelduck were also seen.
