A breezy affair!


Wandering around Hanging Houghton this morning produced an adult Peregrine ranging about and an Osprey over towards Pitsford Res at 8am.  The garden continues to attract small numbers of Lesser Redpolls and about five each of Reed Bunting and Yellowhammer.  The Swallows have arrived in the village and there are now a couple each of singing Chiffchaff and Blackcap.

A couple of visits to replenish the feeders at the three feeding stations at Pitsford Res this morning didn't yield much that was different.  There was a White Wagtail on the dam and a Green Sandpiper on the muddy pools below the dam.  Both Marsh and Willow Tits continue to be attracted to the feeders in Christies Copse and a couple of Siskins seemed to be doing likewise.
