Yesterday evening (Sunday) provided a Kingfisher at Welford Res and a Little Egret at adjacent Sulby Res, with families of Great Crested Grebes on both waters.
A walk around Harlestone Heath this morning (Monday) produced small numbers of very mobile Crossbills. They were only ever seen in flight and there may have been just up to half-a-dozen birds involved. A family of Spotted Flycatchers were also present near the A428 entrance.
A Hobby and the family of Little Owls were again present on the outskirts of Hanging Houghton this evening and four Crossbills flew south west over the Walgrave Bay at Pitsford Res at 8.10pm.
