Birds of the season


This morning there was a female Merlin and a Woodcock at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell.

At about 10.45am this morning the Great White Egret was with 3 Little Egrets on the floodwater at the back of the Holcot Bay at Pitsford Res, as viewed from the Hannington Road.

At 11.45am a Waxwing flew over the Walgrave Bay at Pitsford Res, this high-flying but vocal bird was heading east.  There was a Woodcock flushed from Christies Copse.

Just after 12 noon today there were at least 10 Bramblings on the seed at Harrington Airfield, later joined by a large covey of 15 Grey Partridges.

A 1st winter Mediterranean Gull was present in the gull roost at Pitsford Res this afternoon.
