Birds of the Easterly blast!

Hi

A visit to Harrington Airfield this morning provided some birds despite a very strong and cold easterly wind. The best were 2 male Bramblings, 200+ Fieldfares, a Yellow Wagtail, a Wheatear, a Raven, a Red Kite and 2 Grey Partridges.

A wander around the Blueberry Farm/Brampton Valley area produced 4 Grey Partridges, an adult female Peregrine, 2-3 Red Kites and a Wheatear.

Birds persisting in the garden here at Hanging Houghton included a male Brambling and 2 Lesser Redpolls, with a Raven and Red Kite overhead.

Regards

Eleanor
