Blustery winter day!


It was a little cool and breezy at Harrington Airfield this morning, but at least it was bright and sunny. Small numbers of winter thrushes were present in the bushes along the rough strips and a covey of seven Grey Partridge were also present. A female Merlin was racing around the north side of the complex and the now regular Red Kites were showing well in the winter sun.

Scanning from the Old Scaldwell Road at Pitsford Reservoir at lunch-time produced 2-3 Great White Egrets and the wintering pair of Stonechat.

The last two hours of daylight were spent at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell but the only birds of note were 2-3 Barn Owls and a pair of Stonechat.
