Ditchford

Hi

Despite spending much of the day at Ditchford GP today completing a WeBS count, I struggled to see much out of the ordinary.  A pair of Red-crested Pochard were on the main lake between Irthlingborough and Higham Ferrers and ca4 juvenile Hobbies were adeptly catching dragonflies on the more sheltered pits.  There were 4 Yellow-legged Gulls in fields next to the viaduct pit, 4 Little Egrets, a Green Sandpiper, a Common Sandpiper, 1-2 Siskin(s) and 2-3 Kingfishers present too.  Calling Cetti's Warblers numbered only six birds.  A terrapin sp looked quite at home!

A quick visit to Stanwick GP this evening failed to locate the Spotted Crake, but I finally managed to see the Sacred Ibis.

Regards
