Limited opportunity for birding today on a very grey dank day in the county.
A single Brambling was on the scattered seed at Harrington Airfield this morning. Neil Hasdell located the Slavonian Grebe at Pitsford Res this morning, present off the Brixworth bank next to The Gorses (about half way between the causeway and the dam). A 'redhead' Smew was still present off The Pines and a Redshank was at the yacht club this afternoon.
At 3.05pm this afternoon a lock of 11 Waxwings were in a garden at The Croft, Hanging Houghton briefly, before flying towards Lamport Grange. Two Bramblings and a redpoll sp were also flying around the gardens.
Finally this afternoon there was a male Stonechat in the most northerly field at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell plus a hunting Barn Owl.
We thought we would add an image of a pink male Lesser Redpoll caught yesterday to brighten the day up (please see below)!
