This morning an Osprey appeared again in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton and one or two Hobby were about too.
This afternoon a visit to the west end of the Nene Barrage/Clifford Hill GP provided good views of the Great White Egret (present for its third day), and was still present at 5pm. Other birds included a Little Egret, a Wigeon and 2 Common Sandpipers.
This evening a Hobby and 2 Grey Partridges were noted at Harrington Airfield. An evening visit to Hollowell Res provided little that was new due to an increase in the water level. Birds seen included a Kingfisher, a Wigeon, a Snipe and a Common Sandpiper and now four broods of Tufted Ducks. Ravensthorpe Res attracted a Kingfisher and the Mandarin Duck was still present. A single brood of Tufted Duck was present here too.
