Back to county birding

Hi

A wander around Harrington Airfield this morning was enjoyable with a male Ring Ouzel showing on three occasions along the old airstrip, and presumably is the same long-staying bird which could have been present since March?  Other birds included a Cuckoo, a Grasshopper Warbler, 2 Wheatears and a Turtle Dove.  There were two 'reeling' Grasshopper Warblers and a Cuckoo at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell today.

A visit to Pitsford Res provided views of an Osprey over the reserve, and 2 Common Sandpipers were on the causeway.

A couple of Siskins were at Scotland Wood this afternoon and Kelmarsh Hall still attracted a couple of Lesser Redpolls.

Regards

Eleanor
