Snake's Head Fritillaries


Birding highlights yesterday (Wednesday) were minimal in the cool breeze but warm sunshine.  The Green Sandpiper remained below the dam at Pitsford Res in the morning and a Little Ringed Plover was heard overhead.  Small numbers of Sand Martins and a couple of Swallows were also present as was a singing Grey Wagtail and on-territory Meadow Pipits

The daily visit to Harrington Airfield yielded 6 Bramblings, 2 Wheatears and a pair of Grey Partridge and a couple of Ravens were present at Kelmarsh village.

The Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton produced c100 Golden Plovers and 2 Wheatears on the fields.

The wild flowers looked splendid at Kelmarsh Hall and included Wood Anemones, Primroses and Snake's Head Fritillaries.
