Damp feathers


An excursion in the rain this morning was relatively short-lived, but a calling Water Rail at Brixworth Sewer Works suggests that they may have bred or at least summered at this small site.

The two Ruddy Shelduck were still present off the dam at Pitsford Res, associating with Canada Geese. Various large gulls were loafing on the buoys there despite the watercraft activities, and a Yellow-legged Gull was watching over proceedings from the remnants of the gull-watching hide!
