Kingfisher surprise


No birds of note today but I was a little surprised to come across 2 Kingfishers at the brook in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton this afternoon.  They often appear later in the summer during the post-breeding dispersal period, but I'm guessing these must be breeding not too far away!

This week we have been gradually dismantling the local wild bird feed stations on the Kelmarsh Estate and adjusting the ones at Pitsford Reservoir for the summer.  Never before have we fed so much food to so many birds so late in the season!
