Birds of a breezy county!


Birds seen locally today included a pair of Raven here at Hanging Houghton, a Barn Owl at Blueberry Farm and a Great White Egret north of the causeway at Pitsford Res. Eleanor walked around Sywell CP and noted two Water Rails, a Kingfisher, c6 'redpolls' and about twenty Siskins. The feeders are well-maintained there and it is possible to obtain excellent views of confiding Jays, Marsh Tits and Nuthatches and well as more common species.

Neil H went looking for the Great Grey Shrike at Deenethorpe today but couldn't find it. A number of other birders were also present but the bird couldn't be found.

Doug Goddard was in Abington Park this morning and saw three Ring-necked Parakeets inspecting tree holes (please see the below images) plus just a single Goosander on the lakes there...
