It has been hard work today to find much of note, despite covering quite a bit of ground.
At Pitsford Res this morning there were 5 Swifts and 3 Spotted Flycatchers visible from the yacht club, plus at least one Yellow-legged Gull.
Harrington Airfield seemed quiet with very few migrant passerines. The best was a single Lesser Whitethroat and a juvenile Turtle Dove on the scant cover crop between the concrete track and the old airstrip.
The Brampton Valley between Cottesbrooke and Hanging Houghton was pretty devoid of migrants this morning; all in all suggesting a considerable move-out last night of many birds in this area of the county.
At Pitsford Res this afternoon, a hint of change with a dapper juvenile Arctic Tern fraternising with the Common Terns north of the causeway (still present at 4pm), and both a Hobby and a male Peregrine hunting there.
