A foray at Harrington Airfield this morning was interesting with about 15 Bramblings present and others seemingly arriving whilst I was walking around.  About eight were on the seed just inside the road entrance to the concrete track and others were on the track about another 400m further along.  The female Merlin was again present at the north-western end of the complex - she seemed interested in the good numbers of Skylarks that are slowly amassing on the top fields.  A Corn Bunting was in the rough strip/game cover off the concrete track that leads to the old airstrip.  Six Grey Partridges were also present.

Two Ravens and a Red Kite were between Beck Dairy and Gamboro' Plantation (Cottesbrooke) this morning and a female Red-crested Pochard was still at Ravensthorpe Res viewable from the causeway (12.50pm).
