Cold today, but colder tomorrow...


A bright and cold but lovely winter day out there today. Eleanor took a wander around the Harlestone Heath area where many of the woodland birds were in song. Up to fifty Siskins were present as were half a dozen 'redpolls'.

A Peregrine was in the air between Brixworth and Hanging Houghton this afternoon and two Barn Owls and a pair of Stonechat were on view at Blueberry Farm.

More nest-box checking on the Kelmarsh Estate this afternoon provided an opportunity of walking through Rabbit Hill Spinney and flushing a Woodcock. Two Ravens were seen in flight over nearby fields.
