From rain to wind

Hello

Today was good inasmuch that there wasn't any sustained rain and hopefully everyone saw some sunshine, even if it was a strong, cold wind.

Brixworth Sewer Works again hosted up to three Grey Wagtails this morning, and also provided cover for a Snipe and Water Rail with a redpoll sp over.

The Great Northern Diver was seen at Pitsford Res, riding the choppy brown water near to Yacht Bay (about noon).

Four Bramblings were found along the Brampton Valley Way just north of Lamport Station and another eight were at Harrington Airfield, which also hosted a pair of Grey Partridge.

A good hike around Blueberry Farm was just that - the strong wind ensured that all the birds were keeping their heads down!

A quick visit to Market Harborough this afternoon failed to locate the Otters; the very brown River Welland was swollen but still attracted Kingfisher and Grey Wagtail and I'm sure the Otters weren't far away!

Regards
