Three Ravens were in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton first thing this morning. Then it was off to Ditchford GP to complete a rather rapid WeBs count. Birds of note were few and far between but included the family party of Egyptian Geese again west of Ditchford Lane (pair with eight goslings). Kingfisher numbered at least seven birds and there were five calling Cetti's Warblers, three Little Egrets, a Snipe and a Water Rail.
This evening there were six Whinchats at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell and five Golden Plovers flew over.
