Today a WeBS count was completed at Pitsford Res but only small numbers of wetland birds were present.  A Caspian Gull was present in the Walgrave Bay, a Black-necked Grebe was present just off the dam and a Red Kite sauntered over the nature reserve.  Other birds included a Common Tern, a Goldeneye and a continuous southward movement of Siskins and Meadow Pipits.

The best big bird of the day was the Avro Vulcan displaying over the reservoir, sometimes in tandem with a Spitfire and the local demonstration team The Blades!

At least one Nuthatch visited the garden today and 2 Ravens played in the airspace overhead for a short time.
