The finches are coming!

Hello

This morning a visit to Sywell Country Park didn't provide much of interest but there were two Greenshank flying around for a short time (not believed to have settled).

A couple of days ago a couple of redpoll sp were the first of the autumn for us, and today more nomadic finches appeared with an early male Brambling in the Brampton Valley Way below Hanging Houghton, a Siskin over Hanging Houghton village and a couple of Crossbills flew in to conifers on the outskirts of the village.

At Harrington Airfield this afternoon, notable birds included a Redstart and two Whinchats between the first and second bunkers and two mobile Ravens.

Regards
