Returning migrants on a cool breeze


Limited birding opportunities today in bright warm sunshine but still with a cool breeze.  A singing Whitethroat was noted between Pitsford Res and the village of Old and a singing Lesser Whitethroat was in roadside hedging between the villages of Old and Scaldwell.

A brief visit to Pitsford Res this evening confirmed the continuing presence of the Green Sandpiper below the dam on floodwater, and a Raven was in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton.

A few Swallows and House Martins were noted visiting old nest sites in local villages today, the fore-runners no doubt of many more to come.
