Highlight of the week was undoubtedly a visit to Mill pool, Alvecote on the 10th when a Barn Owl got up from an area of long grass and flew at head height before dropping down into the bottom of a hedge. A Greenshank, 2 Whinchat and Swift were also seen on this visit. There have been several sightings of Hobby both at Alvecote and Caldecote. The last sighting of Redstart at Mancetter was the 9th, ending a great run of records of the species at this sight.
