Plenty of local interest

11th Sept 2018

With a short break visiting friends in Somerset, walks to include Mancetter Hill and Alvecote pools have been almost daily. Sightings of Redstart, Spotted Flycatcher and Whinchat have been particularly good so far but warbler sightings have been few and far between. The first sighting of Wheatear  was on 4th of September with a pair on'the hill' .A bigger surprise at Alvecote yesterday came in the form of a Barn Owl flushed from long grass near the path. Greenshank, 2 Whinchat and a Swift were also seen there.
Wheatear, Mancetter
