Some shots taken on Monday.

Whilst on the Farborough Bank at Draycote on Monday morning this Wagtail dropped down.It looked a bit different so although it was a bit far off I managed this shot.I'm told that it might be a female Blue-headed Wagtail.

Also in the same spot a Wheatear made an appearance which was my first of the year.

A quick visit to Marsh Lane on the way home was worthwhile as the causeway area was lively again with 2 Cetti's, several Sedgies, 2 Reed Warblers and best of all a Grasshopper Warbler was reeling away but not seen.Here are a few shots pity about the reeds.

Hi Max, more good images! You were spotted on Farborough Bank (scope views from Draycote Bank!) by me and Bob H (can we tick you?). The Wheatear would not come very close for me.

Yes I am tickable now a rarity at Ice Station Draytcote due to the cost of petrol.
