15th August 2009

Had a text from Craig Reed saying he'd seen a Hobby along Norton Lane flying towards the lakes.

Unfortunately, I was unable to get out around then and a visit to the lakes during the late afternoon produced little, apart from a few Common Terns, 15+ Swallows and a Mute Swan. Venturing to the area near Junction 3a of the M42, I had 8+ Mistle Thrushes and 2 Stock Doves. Then I returned to the lakes during the evening, and picked out a Greylag Goose amongst a large number of Canada Geese on Engine Pool.
