The sun is just around the corner!

Hi

This morning was spent visiting all the local feed stations where the food is still being consumed avidly.  Another sign of a cold and rather unforgiving Spring!

There were still a few Lesser Redpoll and Siskin in the Kelmarsh Estate woodlands as well as small numbers of singing Willow Warblers, Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps.

At Pitsford Res a first year male Peregrine upset the local pair of Oystercatcher, but I'm sure they'll get over it!  A Brambling remains at the Old Scaldwell Road feeding station.  A small band of 10 House Martins feeding off the yacht club was a welcoming sight.

The garden here at Hanging Houghton continues to attract small numbers of Yellowhammer, Reed Bunting and a couple of Tree Sparrow.

Here's looking forward to a sunny week-end!

Regards

Neil M
