Hard graft migrants

Hi

Despite plenty of time out and about today, the still powerful and cold wind made finding migrants hard work.  Harrington Airfield didn't yield much, a Red Kite and 2 female Bramblings being about the best.

A quick wander at Hollowell Res was enough to locate 2 Jack Snipe and 2 Grey Wagtails.  A hunting Barn Owl was present at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell this afternoon.  Birds in the garden here at Hanging Houghton included a Brambling and 4 Reed Buntings.

At Pitsford Res a female Peregrine was hunting over the causeway just before 10am and this evening a Knot was on the shoreline between the Pintail Bay and Yacht Bay briefly with a Green Sandpiper on the floodwater below the dam.
