Been rather too busy trying to catch up with migrants moving through or arriving at their local destinations to keep up with daily accounts -excuses, excuses. I've focussed on localish sites in the main with mixed success. A summary so far, by no means a complete record just the birds I've managed to see:
Shustoke: Arctic, Black terns,Swift.
Alvecote (Warks) - Dunlin, Blackwits, Garganey, Common Sandpiper, Green Sandpiper, Little Gull1w, Whinchat .
Maxstoke - Redstart.
Mancetter,- Wheatear, Osprey,
Seeswood -Ring Ouzel, Kingsbury (Cliff pool) - Little Gull1w, Black Tern.
Brandon - Red Kite, Cuckoo,
Caldecote - Wheatear.
Thanks to those 'finders' who passed on info.
