A Lazy Day

I thought on a lazy day today just chilling around a few of the Patch Reservoirs with camera in hand and find what was out there the first call being Ingbirchworth. It wasn’t long before getting out of the car that I could hear all the ususal species for this time of year Willow Wadarbler, Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Robin, Yellowhammer, Lapwing and Curlew then I found some Little Ringed Plover six in all four Juveniles with two Adults in attendance, with one here giving off some wing flicking behaviour for some reason or other I don’t know what

Moved on then thru Whiteley Common bagging a couple of extras like Pied wagtail and Skylark finally ending up with Tree Pipit for the year/patch list at a known Pipit site rounding the patch list off to a nice 100 for the year. It was now dinner time and a stop at the Lansett cafe was in order for bacon butties and coffeee before moving on to Langsett reservoir adding a few common species to the day list like Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Mistle Thrush and the Great Spotted Woodpecker is always nice to see. Final stop was Winscar Res but Collard Dove was the Dove I saw and not Turtle this time Cuckoo in flight had me hoping it was aHobby at first but alas a few Oystercatchers to round the day off
