Otter odyssey


A return to Market Harborough was the order of the day, and our attendance during the late morning coincided with two Otters being located straight-away near to the Sainsbury's supermarket.  They were active for some minutes but then disappeared up on to the opposite bank and seemingly went off for a kip!

Some feeding station top-ups took up most of the day and we struggled to see any birds of note.  A couple of Woodcock flushed at Scotland Wood (Kelmarsh Estate) were fairly predictable.

The gull roost at Pitsford Res was monitored this evening, but no gulls of note were seen.  The Great Northern Diver was viewable distantly off The Pines between Moulton Grange Bay and The Holly Tree.

A Barn Owl was still present at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell yesterday afternoon.
