Yesterday afternoon there was a single Crossbill flying around at Hanging Houghton before moving off south east. Amazingly a female Pheasant was chaperoning 6 half-grown youngsters below the village (I do not know how she has managed it in these weather conditions).
This morning the white Common Buzzard was still at Blueberry Farm plus a pair of Grey Partridge (no young sadly).
This afternoon a walk around Pitsford Res south of the causeway included a couple of movers in the shape of a Common Gull and 4 Common Sandpipers. There were new Coot and Mallard broods noted too.
