Pitsford

Hi

Early this afternoon I popped in to Pitsford Res to fill up the feeders at the Old Scaldwell Road feeding station.  There was a vocal male Redstart in the field hedge that parallels the perimeter fence as you walk towards the Scaldwell Bay (on the LHS) by the very large oak tree.  This is a traditional spot for migrant Redstarts.  The three Oystercatchers were present and there was a loafing flock of 14 Shelduck in the mouth of the Walgrave Bay, no doubt on a short stop-over en-route to Bridgewater Bay where most of the British population moult.

Regards

Neil
