Just after midday today the two drake Red-crested Pochard were visible in the Scaldwell Bay at Pitsford Res this morning.
At Blueberry Farm, Maidwell this evening there was the welcome sight of a Short-eared Owl hunting the rough grassland. It would be interesting to know if it was a returning bird from last winter. Also present was a Barn Owl, a Hobby and a Wheatear.
