Brampton Valley migrants


This morning Eleanor located a migrant Redstart in a hedgerow between Hanging Houghton and Cottesbrooke. This particular hedge regularly attracts migrant chats and warblers and is affectionately called 'shrike hedge' in the hope that a member of this family will eventually adorn it!  I'm not sure what is so compelling about this hedge but on some occasions it can be dripping in both migrant and local birds. Also this morning Eleanor saw a 'cream-crown' Marsh Harrier quartering the fields in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton.
