Spring sunshine day


At least 12 Bramblings were present at Harrington Airfield this morning.  At Pitsford Res this morning  the Great White Egret was present in the Holcot Bay and 2 Grey Wagtails were by the dam overflow.  This afternoon there was a pair of Goosander in the Moulton Grange Bay.

A visit to a Kingsthorpe garden today was enjoyable with about 20 Siskins visiting the garden feeders, occasionally joined by about 3 Lesser Redpolls.  A marauding Sparrowhawk caused havoc on more than one occasion.

This afternoon there was a Raven and 2 Red Kites in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton.

Some lovely spring sunshine this morning and during the middle of the day was sufficient to encourage a Small Tortoiseshell and a Brimstone to provide a brief flutter!
