Saturday pm


This afternoon a quick circuit of Harrington Airfield was required after the heavy showers had passed over. Two or three Redstarts remained elusive and an adult male was possibly newly-arrived.  A Whinchat was present and there are still plenty of juvenile Whitethroats flitting around in a variety of vegetation.

This evening another Redstart was present at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell and a 'cream crown' Marsh Harrier was quartering a field towards Haselbech.  A pair of Grey Partridge were also present.

Birds visible from the yacht club at Pitsford Res this evening included 2 juvenile Mediterranean Gulls again, two Yellow-legged Gulls (one juvenile) and the pair of Ruddy Shelduck too.
