Kay , and I decided to visit Draycote Water  just down the road for us, and often the source for some interesting sightings .

However, not today we saw little on our brief visit , but there was a small flock of Meadow Pipits , and I managed a couple of nice images.

 

Leaving the Pipits in peace , they get enough disturbance , without be hastled by photographers as well, we headed for Brandon.

 

On arrival Kay continued her policy of supporting the local economy , we  headed straight for the cafe, and bumped into Di Stone , and Kath, enjoying a nice chat , and a coffee .

Kath and I decided too head for the John Baldwin Hide, to see what was about , while Kay continued to contribute to the cafe's takings.

There was nothing unusual at the hide , but the usual nice cross section , of water birds, and the occasional blue streak of the local kingfishers. A couple of Shovler action shots from the Baldwin.

Decampnig from Baldwin I walked up to the Carlton , which turn up Kestrel , Buzzard , the usual Water Fowl , and some bad tempered coots .

 

So all in all an enjoyable if univentful day

Lovely Mipit shots, Andrew. The first one works a treat with just the right amount of mush.
