Cold weather birds

Hi

Birds in the Walgrave Bay at Pitsford Res this morning included a Crossbill, a Brambling, a Willow Tit and a Woodcock.

Birds searching for food in the garden here at Hanging Houghton included Nuthatch, Yellowhammer, Fieldfare, Redwing and three Bramblings.  There were at least 8 Bramblings feeding within the throng of birds on the seed at Harrington Airfield this morning.

This afternoon a Black-necked Grebe was located off the dam at Pitsford Res, close to the valve tower, with a Chiffchaff in waterside bushes at the dam/yacht club junction.

Birds at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell this afternoon included a hunting Short-eared Owl and a Barn Owl, both in the northern-most field.

Regards

Eleanor and Neil
