Weekend Round-Up

Saturday 12th - Sunday 13th March 2011

Sunday morning's birding around the western section of the Cotswold Water Park produced a singing Goldcrest and four Siskins at pit 44; two Goldeneyes (1m), a Lesser Redpoll (above) and a pair of Reed Buntings at pit 57; and 11 Goldeneyes (3m), 13 Goosanders (2m), two Teal and a Little Egret at pit 41 (Freeth Meer). Three Tree Sparrows were at Harnhill, and at Driffield a pair of Grey Partridges and at least 15 Brown Hares.

Saturday saw a return to Waterhatch, south of Winchcombe for the GREAT GREY SHRIKE, though views were disappointingly more fleeting than Friday. A male Stonechat was a nice year tick however; a Corn Bunting at Hawling was another.
