This morning the Great White Egret was visible at Pitsford Res from the causeway from about 9.20am to 10am at least. It was perched in waterside bushes with Grey Herons between the Holcot and Walgrave Bays.
A good circuit of the Blueberry Farm area near Maidwell this morning was mostly uneventful with just a Red Kite, 2 Ravens and small numbers of Siskins and redpoll sp to show for a couple of hours of wandering.
Sad news was received today of an Otter that was killed on the road causeway at Pitsford Res last week. An examination of the corpse today suggested it was an adult female animal.
