There were two other notable sightings this morning. The first was a Coot on the reservoir, this being notable as they are rather uncommon here even though they are now fairly regular in the Upper Cherwell Valley. The other being a Mink along the river, unfortunately not a good sighting!
The Rookery in the wood is really busy with activity now with most nests having birds attentively working on the nest and some possibly ready to lay eggs.
Other nesting corvids noted so far this year are Carrion Crow and Magpie. This Magpie nest is being constructed in the trees around the car park.
