A quick visit to the reserve section of Pitsford Res this morning provided views of the lingering adult Yellow-legged Gull in the Scaldwell Bay and two drake Red-crested Pochard in the Walgrave Bay.
Large numbers of migrants were in the Brampton Valley between Hanging Houghton and Blueberry Farm this morning. Whitethroat was easily the most common warbler, accompanied by Lesser Whitethroat, Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Garden Warbler and Blackcap. Two Grasshopper Warblers sang at Blueberry Farm and there were two Whinchats in the field just north of the farm complex. A Hobby took a Swallow there.
Three Redstarts were showy next to the farm in hedging adjacent to the footpath leading towards Lamport.
At Harrington Airfield this lunch-time, a juvenile Ring Ouzel made a brief appearance amongst a throng of more common migrants.
