After a week of typical November weather, I've seen a few good birds and missed a few good birds. Highlight has got to be the 3 Short eared Owls hunting in close proximity at Coleshill Quarry followed by a pair of Great Northern Divers at Draycote Water. Birds I've 'missed' included Bittern, Scaup and Common Scoter. Stonechat continue to be found on patches of waste rough ground with the necessary Dock stems. Again no images worth publishing - OK I can just hear one or two saying, 'it hasn't stopped you in the past'.Incidentally,went through not one but two mobile speed traps today at regular spots on the way to Draycote.
