A WeBS census was completed at Pitsford Res today in increasingly windy conditions, but at least the rain held off!
It seemed quiet with only modest numbers of waterbirds and little that was out of the ordinary. The Black-necked Grebe was sheltering in the yacht bay at dusk, a few Crossbills and a Nuthatch were heard calling in the Walgrave Bay early this morning and a Little Egret flew over the causeway. Other birds included eleven unidentified and flighty redpolls, forty Snipe and there were three drake Pintail in the Scaldwell Bay.
At Harrington Airfield this morning the female Merlin was present with prey and up to seven Bramblings were feeding on the seed by the concrete track entrance.
