Monday February 6th
On Cliffe and Otter Pools today, 490 Shoveler was a pretty high count (Steve Cawthray).
A Peregrine was on the pylons . Down at the hides, no sign of Bittern up to 3pm at least.
Warks: 44 Little Egrets left the roost this morning. The Great White Egret remained till after the Little Egrets and the observer left (Steven Pick).
Staffs: The White-fronted Goose remained on Jubilee Wetland and a Great White Egret, 300+ Lapwing, 260 Golden Plover, 11+ Shelduck.
A Red Kite flew south at 1045hrs (J & P Fincham). Any brighter weather just now seems to result in a Kite record in or around the Valley.
West Mids: 426 Golden Plovers were off Wishaw Lane (Carl Hiles)
