Keep on scanning!


Early afternoon today found Eleanor standing on Blueberry Hill near Maidwell waiting for another fly-over of the Vulcan and scanning for raptors too! In addition to the Vulcan, seven species of raptor showed, the best being an adult male Merlin and an adult female Peregrine (both birds seemingly moving freely between Harrington Airfield and Blueberry Farm for some weeks now), and a Hobby.

This evening a visit to Pitsford Res in the dam area resulted in distant views of two Ruff and a Ringed Plover, a Grey Wagtail and three Yellow-legged Gulls in the gull roost.
