February menagerie


At Pitsford Reservoir this morning there were 3 Siskins on the feeders in Christies Copse and a pair of Grey Partridge in fields to the west of the Walgrave Bay.  This afternoon a Barn Owl was hunting the Scaldwell Meadow and successfully caught a large vole.

At least one Brambling was at Harrington Airfield this morning and several were at Kelmarsh Hall together with a few Siskins and Lesser Redpolls.  Several Lesser Redpolls were in the village at Hanging Houghton this morning and the Nordic-type Jackdaw was present again, with a pair of Grey Partridge in fields below the village

A flock of at least 8 Waxwings were in bushes by Beck Dairy, Cottesbrooke at about 10.30am and an adult female Peregrine was at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell this afternoon.
