Garden surprise!


This morning a male Marsh Harrier was in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton at about 7.45am, flying up to the village of HH before disappearing.

This afternoon a Wheatear was also in the Brampton Valley between HH and Cottesbrooke.

Local ringer Chris Payne experienced a pleasant surprise today when he extracted a female Redstart from his mist net in the garden at Greens Norton (images attached)!
