Thursday birds


Eleanor spent some time today walking the Blueberry Farm area near Maidwell, again confirming the presence of a pair of Barn Owl and two singing Grasshopper Warblers. 

Thirty-five Gadwall feeding together at Pitsford Res between the Old Scaldwell Road and the causeway this evening is the nucleus of an increasing summer flock which will include moulting males and hopefully breeding females. And the Cuckoo is still calling loudly - I think he needs to read the rule book because most males quieten down or shut up completely at the beginning of the June!
