A sunny day in February


An improvement in the weather today with plenty of long sunny spells bringing forth plenty of bird song. Two Ravens were noted at Haselbech Hill this morning.

A visit to Brixworth Water Treatment Works provided at least a couple of Grey Wagtails and a Chiffchaff and the filter beds were busy with plenty of Pied Wagtails.

Birds noted at Pitsford Reservoir today included the three White-fronted Geese and two Ruddy Shelduck in the Pintail Bay (about 11am), a Willow Tit in trees next to the Fishing Lodge and a Woodcock at Christies Copse in the Walgrave Bay.

The day finished with a fabulous sunset and a calling Grey Partridge in a hillside field at Hanging Houghton.
