Birds of the Bramble and the Sky


A visitation to Harrington Airfield this morning proved mostly quiet for birds, but a Short-eared Owl was flushed from the third bunker and the covey of 7 Grey Partridge remained.

A wander around the Irthlingborough Lakes and Meadows reserve was breezy but pleasant in some weak winter sunshine, the best birds being a couple of Red Kites and a Little Egret.

Later, two Ravens and a Barn Owl were at Blueberry Farm and some nest-box maintenance and clearing out at Scotland Wood (Kelmarsh Estate) caused four Woodcock to flush up as we ploughed through the brambles.

Yesterday afternoon (Saturday) and a roadside Barn Owl was showing well between the villages of Mears Ashby and Wilby.
