Diary

----------------------------------------------

10th October 2017 – I was at RSPB Nagshead this lunchtime.  It was a beautiful, autumnal day with a gusty breeze which is causing the coloured leaves to fall adding to the carpet of acorns on the paths along the Gloucestershire Way.  Off that track, I found 4 Fallow Deer moving relatively quickly to the north.  A Coal Tit was foraging very close to me along the short trail and seemed oblivious of me standing there and watching this bird move methodically along the various twigs of one of the oak trees.

 

9th October 2017 – I made a visit to WWT Slimbridge this morning.  There were a good number and variety of waders present including Ruff, Redshank, Little Ringed Plover, Lapwing, Black-tailed Godwit, Avocet, Dunlin and Little Stint.  There were about 10 Little Stint which was the biggest number that I have seen together for several years.  A Common Gull was present in the Black-headed Gull flock on South Lake.  There was one of the latter species with a white darvic with the characters ‘2N28’.

 

8th October 2017 – There were a number of ladybirds around the windows at home on a pleasant and warm day. 

          At Garway church there was a pristine Red Admiral butterfly in the churchyard.  Overhead and down the Monnow Valley there were many Ravens wheeling around in the updrafts produced by the breeze and the warmth of the day.

 

2nd October 2017 – There was an October Red Admiral butterfly in the garden today.  There have been reports nationally of good numbers of this species of late.

 

1st October 2017 – I went to RSPB Nagshead and walked up as usual from the Stoneworks at Cannop.  The woods were quiet but there was a mixed tit flock around the Gloucestershire Way which included some Coal Tits.  There has been a very good yield of acorns judging by the number lying on the paths.  It is also very muddy on the trails for the time of year.
