There are birds out there!


Today quite a number of birds were on show locally, the best perhaps being the juvenile Marsh Harrier at Pitsford Res.  It was seen on and off for about an hour by Neil Hasdell et al, hunting in the Scaldwell and Walgrave Bays from about 11.20am (see record shot below from Neil H).

At Ravensthorpe Res the pair of Red-crested Pochard were showing on the small side visible from the causeway.  At nearby Hollowell Res, raptors included an Osprey and a female Peregrine, and a pair of Raven were on show.  Four Crossbills were in Harlestone Heath in the close vicinity and visible from the garden centre just off the A428.
