I must make a shameful confession - I saw my first Wheatear of 2017 yesterday, 7th, at our club fishery. A trully woeful state of affairs, I've recorded Bee-eater, Wryneck and Golden Oriole before seeing one of the most iconic migrants to pass through our region - must try harder in 2018.

|A very pleasant fishery at which to pass a few hours and catch a few fish|

|Perch of 1 lb 14 oz - my best, so far, from this venue.|
