Patch

20/02/11

A planned patch walk with my gornal friend (The 'Gornal Birder') took place.
A male WHITE WAGTAIL was feeding in the paddocks at lincomb in the evening with the horses, this was the earliest i have recorded a white wag on the patch and my first for 2 years.

otherwise, 3 Goosander ( all fem) were on the river, 2 at Blackstone and a single bird, unfortunatly with a seemingly injured wing was just south of the limcomb lock on the river adjacent to larford lakes.

The BRAMBLING'S remained in the birch woodland, with a minimum of 8 birds counted, and 20c Siskin remained.



A meadow Pipit was heard to fly over,

9 Great crested Grebe were on larford lakes and there was an extra bird feeding actually on the river just north of stourport marina.

The highlight of the day however is when checking under a piece of corrogated iron for snakes, we found a small COMMON LIZZARD, infact the 1st lizzard i have ever seen in the UK. We left the Lizzard quickly and left the corrogated iron in place.
