Harrington Airfield

Hello

Time was spent at Harrington Airfield today in an effort to make it ready for some bird ringing this autumn. Some of the original rides have been made net friendly and the first session of the season may be as early as Sunday morning (although a change in the weather forecast may compromise this or make us start much later). As such the old airstrip and bunker areas will effectively be out of bounds during the ringing session, but anyone who would like to come along and observe the activities is welcome to join us providing you have communicated with me beforehand - email -

A small tit flock present there today included some common warblers and a Willow Tit. Butterflies included Marbled White and there were plenty of day-flying moths too. The Bee Orchids have gone over now and the Common Spotted Orchids are also past their best...

Regards
