Hidden diver!


A wander out with Bazra this morning in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton yielded a continuation of now regular sightings of the wintering female Peregrine, two Ravens and the resident mostly all-white Common Buzzard.

A couple of excursions to Pitsford Reservoir in blustery and wet conditions failed in an effort to connect with the Great Northern Diver, even though it was still present.  A 'redhead' Smew, 7 Little Egrets and a sudden large increase in the numbers of roosting Great Black-backed Gulls had to do instead!
