Went straight to the Teal Pool hide where,although it was nice to meet up with two Warwickshire birding legends Bob Duckhouse and Kevin Grocock,I was told the Godwits had flown.Luckily a pair of Little Ringed Plovers flew in for a photo shoot to calm my mood.
As soon as I saw the Godwits land on the river pool I shot over to the hide where it was nice to meet up with Dave Hutton.The Godwits were a bit distant but it was nice to see all five.
Sorry but some more Cetti's shots but as I don't think I'll better these I promise not to post any more for a while.
A Grasshopper Warbler was reeling out on the Newlands not far from the bench.It remained a fair distance away and there were always twigs in the way so pics for record purposes only.The last shot is a cheat I took it in June 2008 at Marsh Lane but it shows what they look like.
