Murky Sunday


Birds noted at Pitsford Reservoir today included a Great White Egret and three Shelduck north of the causeway and both Marsh Tit and Willow Tit around the feeders in Christies Copse.

Please be aware that a birder's car was broken in to today at Pitsford, the car being parked and unattended at the top of the Old Scaldwell Road. This is a rare event at this site but occurs a couple of times most years.

Birds in the garden here at Hanging Houghton today included up to five Lesser Redpolls, a couple of Reed Buntings, a Yellowhammer and a Nuthatch. 

The afternoon was spent visiting wild bird feeding stations and whilst we were doing so a Woodcock decided to fly a couple of circuits around Scotland Wood (Kelmarsh Estate).
