Mediocre birding


A run around the Harlestone Heath area this morning was sufficient to note about 4 Crossbills by the A428 entrance and small numbers of Siskins throughout the wood.

Ravensthorpe Res seemed quiet apart from the long-staying Goldeneye and a Kingfisher.  The adjacent Hollowell Res held an adult Yellow-legged Gull, a Hobby and 2 Yellow Wagtails.  At least 10 Common Buzzards were on show over the ridge.

Pitsford Reservoir north of the causeway remains uninspiring with birds noted this evening comprising of the two drake Red-crested Pochard still, a Goldeneye, a Kingfisher and a Siskin.

Two Whinchats and a Wheatear were present at the south end of the Blueberry Farm complex this evening.
