CWP Tour 20-04-2014

Today we visited The Cotswold Waterpark with a total spices list of 57.

Our client today was Fumia a lady from Japan. Today I realised how much we take our common everyday birds for granted with Fumias comments about how colourful that Blue tit is and look at the colours on that Chaffinch, It made me stand and think how lucky we are to be able to see these birds everyday in our back gardens.

Some of the other highlights of the tour were the four Little ringed plovers flying around and showing off the broken wing display, we also picked up two Yellow wagtails sat on the waste ground amongst the vegetation, a couple of Snipe, 6 Lapwings and two Skylarks.

We then moved to a different area and found three Oystercatchers displaying their piping calls and strutting around after each other. We also managed to hear a Nightingale and saw a Red kite drift over head.

On a different note the wild flower meadows are now starting to look at their best with fields full of Cowslips and Snakes head fritillaries all in flow bloom. DT
