A excursion to a restricted area to the east of the county this morning was interesting and provided views of a pair of Little Ringed Plover, three pairs of nesting Lapwing, two Snipe, a pair of Shelduck, three Wheatears and a couple of singing Willow Warblers.
An afternoon wander around the Titchmarsh Reserve at Thrapston GP yielded a pair of Shelduck, a 'redhead' Goosander, up to five Little Egrets, a pair of Oystercatcher, three Common Terns, four Swallows, five Cetti's Warbler territories, a couple of Willow Warblers, and a singing Sedge Warbler was reported.
Birds seen from the dam at Pitsford Res this morning included the Great Northern Diver, the Red-necked Grebe, a Green Sandpiper and a Yellow Wagtail. About half a dozen Sand Martins were visible from the causeway.
At Harrington Airfield this afternoon, two Lesser Redpolls came down on the track to feed alongside four Bramblings, and a Raven and two Wheatears were also present.
Andrew and Karen Moss and Helen Franklin committed to some ringing this morning in the very west of the county at Glyn Davies Wood. Good numbers of woodland birds were processed and assessed and included a couple of Blackcaps, two Chiffchaffs, two Nuthatch and a Great Spotted Woodpecker.
