Eleanor was out and about today in very blustery conditions. Not surprisingly, Eleanor's first venue was the dam at Pitsford where yesterday's Red-necked Grebe showed itself. In addition a drake Goldeneye came quite close and the Great Northern Diver also put in an appearance. The grebe is clearly in transitional plumage and the diver sported some adult-type black feathers. The Green Sandpiper remains on the flood water below the dam.
Harrington Airfield was very windy and at least four Bramblings were present on the seed off the Draughton Road, with a Wheatear in the Brampton Valley between Hanging Houghton and Cottesbrooke, a regular site for migrating chats.
