Hi all, check out a few sites in the valley yesterday, although there wasn't much to report!?Probably the highlight of the day was seeing 3 Little Egrets and 1 Yellow Wagtail on the Hobley Pool/Upper Marsh section of Cossington Meadows.
Other sightings included the long staying drake Red crested Pochard and good numbers of Swifts (20+) at Watermead CP South.
Strangly for the time of the year Wanlip Meadows was very quiet with only a Common Sandpiper and 3 Common Terns the only noteworthy sightings.
Hopefully with the weekend looking good weather wise we should get some more unusal sightings or probably I'm just tempting fate?!
