For those interested I'm posting the compiled Warwickshire monthly sightings that are published in Bird Watching magazine within my blog.

http://out4aduck.blogspot.co.uk/p/wa...ings-2015.html

I try and find the sightings through everyones blogs, RBA and Twitter but would welcome any other sources.

You can also see the latest sightings from Salford Priors GP.

Hi Neil
Is there public access to Salford Priors GP and Pophills? If so, please can you say where is best to park?
Cheers
Mary

Access to Pophills is easy, you can park by the green gate. Sadly the Estate are doing some drainage work in the fields next door which has stopped our good run with the waders.

Access to south area is very limited. There are public rights of way but not ideal. Drop me a mail if you ever fancy a visit and if I'm around I'd be happy to help. Wellington boots are a must !

There is a guide to Salford Priors GP in my last Bird Watching magazine (Autumn 2015), page 52, No7 in the Go Birding section.

That's very true, however the main pit isn't even mentioned or shown. I can only think this is due to the restricted rights of way. Let's hope things improve in future when the estate take back over the land.

Combined Warwickshire sightings for January.

http://out4aduck.blogspot.co.uk/p/wa...ings-2016.html

I've also added a couple of record photos of a leucustic Yellowhammer which was a very strange find yesterday.

Thought I'd post a couple of shots of Siskin's taken around Salford Priors today.

For those who use Hillers Hide, a polite notice has gone up asking patrons to spend no longer than a hour in the hide at any one time. Plenty of proper birds just down the road at the pits

Hi all, out for a drive yesterday (Thursday) my wife shouted "Look at all those buzzards and there could be a Red Kite among them" I stopped the car and walked back a few yards to look out over a field and woodland and counted at least 13 birds, plenty of Buzzards but at least 4 Red Kites. The Buzzards were generally moving away but the R Kites were circling over the tree tops and the nearest part of the field. They gave me the impression that it could have been their territory although I did not see any that I could say were youngsters as I did not have my bins with me. I hesitate to give the location on here but let me say it was somewhere between Coventry and Rugby. I was just wondering if this is a new (only) R Kite colony in Warwickshire. I will be going back with bins in the next few days to see if they are still there and see if there is any evidence of breeding.

Many folks will already be aware that two Cattle Egret have been roosting at WMBC Ladywalk for the last few nights and frequenting a cattle field adjacent to the railway line at Lea Marston during the day. I had an hour on the river/railway bridges once the rain had stopped this afternoon but could only find one Cattle Egret, and reports this evening suggest only one bird roosted at Ladywalk too.

The fields nearby were full of geese, gulls and corvids, with plenty of Pied Wagtails also around the cattle. Stonechat and Cetti's Warbler in the marshy area next to the river on the other side of the road. Mixed group of around 15 Swallow and House Martin through. Peregrine hunting.
