August migrants


A visit to Harrington Airfield this morning did not result in any sightings of yesterday's Woodchat Shrike.  Birds present included a Marsh Harrier still, a Cuckoo and a Turtle Dove.

Birds north of the causeway at Pitsford Res this morning included an adult Yellow-legged Gull still, two Little Egrets, a Green Sandpiper, a Spotted Flycatcher and a Kingfisher.

In the Brampton Valley today between Hanging Houghton and Cottesbrooke there was a Stonechat, 2 Whinchats, a Wheatear and a Clouded Yellow butterfly.

An Osprey flew over Hanging Houghton in a westerly direction at about 11.30am and other birds seen from the garden included Red Kite and Hobby.
