Garden birds here at Hanging Houghton this morning included three Reed Buntings and a Brambling.
This afternoon and a foray around the Harrington Airfield complex provided views of a female Merlin, a couple of Red Kites and 20 Bramblings. Skylarks had either increased in number or were simply more obvious both visually and vocally today, there perhaps being no coincidence that a Merlin was there too!
The Great Northern Diver was again visible from the dam at Pitsford Reservoir late this afternoon.
