The migrants are arriving...


Two Bramblings were present at Harrington Airfield this morning and the white wing-tagged Common Buzzard made an appearance near to Hanging Houghton.

This evening two Curlew flew east over the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton, a flock of c500 Golden Plovers were in the fields there which is presumably why the adult female Peregrine was there too!

At Pitsford Res, birds visible from the dam this evening included the Red-necked Grebe, a Green Sandpiper, a Common Sandpiper, two male Grey Wagtails and plenty of hirundines made up of c50 Sand Martins, 2 House Martins and at least 6 Swallows.
